Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups strawberries, hulled and quartered

Preparation


1. Whisk together first 5 ingredients (through black pepper) in a large serving bowl. Add berries and red onion; let stand 15 minutes.

2. Meanwhile, lightly coat a seasoned cast-iron skillet or nonstick pan with cooking spray, and heat over moderately high heat. Add prosciutto in one layer, and cook, turning, about 5 minutes or until golden brown and crispy. Transfer to a plate to cool; crumble and reserve.

3. Place the baby arugula in a large serving bowl with the cheese; add the strawberries, red onion, and balsamic dressing, and toss gently until just coated. Divide the salad among 4 serving plates, and top evenly with the cooked prosciutto.
