Prosciutto and Arugula Salad
Prosciutto is often complimented by the flavors of fruit, and usually a sweeter fruit. For this salad we used fresh grapefruit. It adds a bit of fresh sweet flavor, and also the acidity in the fruit replaces the need for vinegar, so you only need a splash of olive oil to dress the salad.
