Prosciutto & Mandarin Orange Salad

This salad has amazing consistency.  The prosciutto adds a great saltiness to the dish, which pairs well with the clean bell pepper and chive flavors.  The dressing for this salad is light because it’s just an accent, the flavors of everything else in the salad are what really shine.  So enjoy!
