  • 3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

  • 23 basil leaves
  • 1 teaspoon oregano

  • 4 strips of prosciutto, pan fried until crispy

Instructions

For Dressing

  1. Combine all ingredients in a blender and process on high for 1-2 minutes.
  2. Pour in a glass jar and refrigerate to allow dressing to thicken.
  3. Oil will rise to the top. Don’t worry, shake it well before pouring over your salad.
  4. *Note: you might want to soak your raisins in hot water for about 5 minutes and allow them to “plump” in order to get a smooth consistency.

Salad

  1. In a large bowl, combine the field greens and salad dressing. Toss to coat all leaves evenly.
  2. Plate and top with fig strips, parmesan cheese and prosciutto strips.
