Proscuitto

i have a package of cittero fresco proscuitto. it says it's good till 5/15. but i opened it already. i hate to throw it out, because it wasn't cheap, but i'm a little uncertain about eating it. does the sell-by date apply even after it's been opened?
thanks for any advice.

I tend to use things up way before the dates...my solution...grab some good melon, wrap chunks in prosciutto, invite everyone over...and let's drink some cocktails and have some good snacks!!!

Proscuitto is also good wrapped around avocado wedges, drizzeled with a little olive oil and lightly seasoned with a garlic seasioning.

You can also "butterfly" some boneless chix breasts, pound them out lightly with a mallet, then stuff them with your proscuitto & some cheese (provolone, mozzy or a bit o' parm). Dredge in flour or panko crumbs, then fry or bake. Mmmm!
