Heirloom Caprese Salad with Crispy Prosciutto

Heirloom Caprese Salad with Crispy Prosciutto

Hello & Happy Summer. Today I am sharing a light & cool Summer salad recipe. If you’ve been following me for a while, you know that I don’t love a salad. I am just not a huge fan of certain lettuce- that’s why a caprese is one of my all time favorite salads!

I used Heirloom tomatoes for this one, but creole or another variety will work as well. I picked my Heirloom tomatoes up from Albertsons & grabbed a yellow & red one.

This recipe is a perfect lunch for 2 and would be great as an appetizer for more!
