A great combination of flavors. Mixed salad greens and thin slices of Prosciutto di Parma tossed together with balsamic vinaigrette dressing. Garnished with pine nuts, Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese and slices of red onion.

Ingredients

6 cups mixed salad greens (such as romaine and radicchio) torn into bite-sized pieces
1 cup thinly sliced Prosciutto di Parma (3 oz.), cut in wide strips
3⁄4 cup Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese (1 1⁄2 oz.), shaved
1⁄2 cup toasted pine nuts
1⁄4 cup thinly sliced red onion rings
1 cup lightly packed fresh basil leaves, torn
1⁄2 cup olive oil
6 large cloves garlic, halved
1⁄2 cup balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp. brown sugar
1⁄2 tsp. salt
1⁄4 tsp. ground black pepper
