Ultimate Salad

I had a version of this ensalada 1st in Buenos Aires. I adapted it slightly by adding the 1/4 lb of good, chopped prosciutto. If anyone has a name for this salad I would love to know if there is one.



Ensalada de Buenos Aires

Bag of mixed salad greens
1 wedge of brie cheese, (room temp, cut into slices)
¼ lb. of prosciutto diced up
½ small can of mixed macadamias/cashews (roasted in a pan of butter, until they almost begin start to burning)
1/2 tablespoon butter
balsamic vinaigrette

Roast nuts over medium heat in butter for about 5-6 minutes. Remove from heat and place nuts in a bowl to cool.

Slice the brie into 1" square slices about 1/4" thick or less.

Chop the prosciutto into bite size pieces.

Mix all above in a salad bowl,

Add Dressing just before serving:

1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon chopped garlic
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3/4 cup olive oil
