Spinach Salad with Prosciutto, Pears, Pomegranate and Balsamic Dressing. Healthy salad full of anti-oxidants.
While I think pear and prosciutto go together so well as an appetizer that you don’t really need to add anything else, in this recipe I did add pomegranate seeds and spinach to create an actual salad. This salad could be served before dinner; it could be one of the appetizers on your table; or you could have it for lunch.
I am still recovering from my 10 days of travel, so this post will be brief and about fresh and healthy ingredients – exactly what I need after eating out for 10 days.
The salad dressing is simply olive oil with melted honey and balsamic vinegar and the end result is a wonderful, healthy Spinach Salad with Prosciutto, Pears, Pomegranate – full of anti-oxidants.
Here is the simple Balsamic Dressing, made by combining together olive oil, honey, balsamic vinegar:
Prosciutto makes this salad so delicious!
Spinach leaves are coated with Balsamic dressing.
- 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1 teaspoon honey
- 4 oz spinach
- 1 pear , cored, sliced
- 5 oz prosciutto
- 1/3 cup pomegranate seeds
Combine balsamic vinegar, olive oil, honey in a small bowl and mix until emulsified.
Place spinach in a large bowl, pour salad dressing over it, toss to combine. You don’t have to pour all of the dressing, use the amount that works for you.
Slice pear thinly, tear prosciutto into thin strips.
Place spinach onto the serving plates. Top with pear slices, torn prosciutto, pomegranate seeds.
