For each sandwich (multiply this depending on the number of sandwiches you are making):

  • About 2 oz. 3-4 thin slices prosciutto
  • 1 c arugula
  • 1/4 c grape tomatoes halved
  • 1 T Creamy Balsamic Vinaigrette
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 2 slices of your favorite sandwich bread regular or gluten free


  • Prepare the crispy prosciutto by preheating your oven to 350°F, placing the prosciutto on a cooling rack which is set on top of a baking sheet, and baking for 6-8 minutes per side, or until crispy. Set aside on paper towels to drain. Alternatively, you could cook it in a pan on the stove top over medium low heat until crispy.
  • Assemble the sandwiches by first tossing together in a bowl the arugula, tomatoes, and Creamy Balsamic Vinaigrette, and seasoning with salt and pepper, if desired.
  • Lightly toast two slices of your favorite sandwich bread. Top one slice with the arugula mixture, layer on the prosciutto, and top with the second slice of bread.
