Romaine and Watercress Salad with Asparagus and Prosciutto
Why This Recipe Works
We found that earthy, crunchy romaine lettuce provided a solid partner for the spicy, tender watercress in this salad. Thinly slicing the asparagus allowed us to combine it cohesively with the salad greens. Rich, salty prosciutto and toasted pine nuts added a Mediterranean flair. We picked sherry vinegar as the base for our Foolproof Vinaigrette here because it best complemented the peppery watercress and salty pork.
