At his new Bar Americain, in New York City, Bobby Flay serves a sampler of country hams from Kentucky, Texas and Virginia. Incredible on their own, country hams are also great in a salad with juicy mangoes.

  1. 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  2. 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  3. 1 teaspoon molasses
  4. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  5. 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  6. 4 ounces mesclun greens (8 cups)
  7. 2 ripe mangoes, peeled and thinly sliced
  8. 4 ounces thinly sliced country ham or prosciutto
  1. In a small bowl, whisk the vinegar with the mustard and molasses; season with salt and pepper. Add the olive oil in a thin stream, whisking until emulsified.
  2. In a large bowl, toss the greens and mangoes with two-thirds of the dressing. Transfer the salad to a platter and top with the ham. Drizzle the remaining dressing over the ham and serve.
