Prosciutto and Onion Salad with Homemade Dressing

This is a simple salad with prosciutto, onion and homemade dressing. It's an easy, foolproof recipe. It goes well with wine too.

Ingredients: 2 servings

Red leaf lettuce
about 4 leaves
as needed
★Extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon
★Lemon juice
2 teaspoons
★ Usukuchi soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon

★Black pepper
a small amount


1. These are the ingredients. For the lemon, I use Pokka lemon for convenience.
2. Slice the onion with peeler (or slicer). Soak them in the water for 10 minutes then drain.
3. While soaking the onion, tear the lettuce into bite-sized pieces along the fibers and rinse with water.
4. Prepare the dressing. Combine all the ★ marked ingredients in a bowl.
5. Place the lettuce on a plate and top with the prosciutto and then onion slices. Pour over the dressing and done!

Story Behind this Recipe

I decided to make this salad at home since prosciutto is expensive if we eat out.
