Author Notes

This Prosciutto & Fig Salad is light and bright, great for a holiday side or to serve with your favorite fall and main dishes. It’s nicely balanced with both sweet and savory flavors. The arugula is herby and peppery. The figs are lightly sweet with a fruity, honey flavor. The prosciutto adds salty, savory goodness. And the almonds add a bit of crunch. The vinaigrette is mild and lightly sweet, with a nutty flavor from Fresh Press Farms cold pressed oil. —Emily Smith
