Prosciutto makes these wilted greens versatile enough to be served as a salad with melon or as a sandwich filling with fresh ricotta and crusty bread.

  1. 8 slices prosciutto (about 6 ounces)
  2. 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  3. 1/2 pound tender young greens, such as arugula, tatsoi, dandelion or mesclun
  4. Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  5. 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  1. Arrange the prosciutto on 4 plates. In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil until shimmering. Add the greens and a generous pinch each of salt and pepper and cook over moderate heat, tossing, until barely wilted, about 1 minute. Add the lemon juice and toss, then mound the greens alongside the prosciutto. Drizzle with the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil, season with pepper and serve.
