Not everyone knows that the Mediterranean Diet can include prosciutto. Prosciutto is like a fancy bacon that is much more impressive to your guests. The prosciutto, along with the capers are the salty, briny combination that shine in this simple salad. This salad takes many Italian flavors and intelligently combines them for tons of flavor and satisfaction. I like to eat this salad along with eggplant parmesan or spaghetti and meatballs. However, you can definitely eat this salad as a meal by itself. A glass of red wine and a slice of crusty bed will pair perfectly with this salad! Enjoy!
