Last week, my sweet daughter took me out to dinner for my birthday and Mother’s day all kind of combined. We went to our favorite Italian restaurant and I chose what I always choose, Chicken Florentine. Chicken Florentine, light on the chicken and the Florentine, and heavy on the butter and cheese, just like I like it. However after having half of it for dinner and the other half for lunch the next day, my body was screaming for something a little less. A little less cheese. A little less butter.
So, I went searching for lightest salad I could find.
I found Honeydew and Prosciutto with Greens and Mint Vinaigrette in The Bon Appetit Cookbook: Fast Easy Freshin the first course section. Yes, it was supposed to be a first course, but it was just what I wanted. I served this with a glass of wine and slice of fresh baked bread. Heaven.
Now, if you don’t have the book, (but you should SERIOUSLY), you can find the recipe online: Honeydew and Prosciutto with Greens and Mint Vinaigrette.
Make this. Really.
