Romaine Salad with Prosciutto Crisps


Source: Martha Stewart Living, April 2001


  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for pan
  • 4 slices (about 2 ounces) prosciutto
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves, coarsely chopped
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 6 ounces romaine hearts, leaves torn in half
  • 1 ounce Pecorino Romano cheese, shaved


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Lightly brush a rimmed baking sheet with olive oil, and arrange the prosciutto in a single layer. Place in the oven, and bake until crisp, 5 to 10 minutes. Remove from the oven, and let cool on a wire rack.

  2. Combine the olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and thyme in a bowl; season with salt and pepper, and whisk to combine. Add the romaine and shaved Pecorino Romano; toss to combine. Arrange on 4 plates; serve topped with the prosciutto crisps.
