Warm Greens Salad with Prosciutto & Almonds

 

Ingredients

3/4 cup (90g) natural almonds, roughly chopped

1 tsp Pure Maple Syrup

½ tsp Vanilla Bean Paste

2 tsp extra virgin olive oil

Sea salt flakes, to taste

Freshly cracked black pepper, to taste

50g peas, fresh or frozen

100g snow peas, trimmed

100g green beans, trimmed

1 bunch asparagus, trimmed

8 slices prosciutto

Zest and juice of one lemon (45ml)

1 red onion, finely chopped

¼ bunch fresh mint, leaves picked, washed & chopped

¼ bunch fresh parsley, leaves picked, washed & chopped

 

Method

STEP 1
Preheat oven to 180C (fan forced). Combine almonds, vanilla, maple syrup, 1 teaspoon of olive oil, salt and pepper in a small bowl and mix to combine. Tip onto a lined baking tray and roast for 15 minutes until golden and aromatic. Allow to cool on tray and break up if pieces become stuck together.

STEP 2
Blanch peas, snow peas, beans and asparagus in a large pot of boiling salted water until tender-crisp, about 2-3 minutes. Remove from boiling water and drain in a colander while running under cold water to stop the cooking process.

STEP 3
Heat remaining olive oil in a small frypan and cook onion until translucent. Add prosciutto and cook until golden and crispy. Remove from frypan and chop roughly.

STEP 4
To assemble, place greens on a large serving platter and sprinkle with prosciutto, almonds, lemon zest, mint and parsley. Drizzle with extra olive oil and lemon juice and toss lightly to combine.
