Arugula Salad with Apples and Prosciutto

Looking to put a fresh twist on the same boring old salad? I made this lovely arugula salad the other night for dinner. Pairing the crisp greens with sweet apples and salty prosciutto was a winning combination. I served my salad with a homemade Roasted Acorn Squash Soup (click here for the recipe). It was a healthy and tasty dinner that even Kuzak really enjoyed!

Note that this salad is great for company - easy to make - but with a beautiful presentation sure to impress!

Domestic Diva's Arugula Salad with Apples and Prosciutto

4 cups arugula
1 apple, cut into thin slices
6 strips prosciutto
1 tsp good balsamic vinegar
2 tbsp good olive oil
salt and pepper


Lay the strips of prosciutto flat along the bottom of a plate or wide-bottomed bowl. Place apples slices on top.

Meanwhile, in a big bowl, whisk together the vinegar and olive oil. Add the arugula and toss to coat in the dressing. Salt and pepper to taste. Place the arugula on top of the apples and prosciutto. Enjoy!


  1. Love the idea of lining up apples on prosciutto - I am going to try this one!

  2. OMG, it was soooo good I might make it again tonight. You should def try this one.
