Wow anyone with a simple salad of chicken wrapped in salty prosciutto over a bed of greens and sun dried tomatoes then drizzled with a creamy blue cheese vinaigrette!
Let’s all put our fancy pants on.
Fancy pants because this meal right here is everything you want for a dish that is impressive, delicious yet ever so simple to make. What else do we need from a summer night meal that is suitable for a dinner in to impress the hubs or woo some friends
Do you love prosciutto? Because I have a borderline obsession. The salty and butteriness that comes through immediately elevates any dish. Not to mention, you can leave it as it is or crisp up for a crunch topper that I believe is superb to bacon.
Pah-lease don’t get yell…bacon is yummy and all but prosciutto is far superior in my world.
But enough drooling about prosciutto. Lean chicken is wrapped in the prosciutto, then baked, infusing the chicken with its buttery, sweet notes to make one juicy bird. To keep the salad simple, and quick to throw together, I left the other ingredients rather minimal. Sun dried tomatoes provide another sweet note, yet tang. With a sprinkle of blue cheese crumbles, you are almost ready to go!
And the dressing. Ahmahgawd. The dressing. A few ingredients and you have a dressing that you will want to drink straight. I have been all over cheese infused dressings lately. More to come on that soon! Olive oil is mixed with vinegar, garlic, dijon mustard, honey and blue cheese. Oh the blue cheese! A creamy, salty and creamy blue cheese dressing that ties the entire salad together.
This evening, let’s all put our new attire on and show off our fancy pants salad!
