Crispy Prosciutto Bits Salad
The other day, I made crispy prosciutto bits with a packet of prosciutto (Parma ham). I used half of the crispy prosciutto to make sautéed prosciutto cabbage. To use up the remaining crispy prosciutto, I make this crispy prosciutto bits salad. This is like a crispy bacon bits salad, but made with prosciutto – so yes, one can replace the prosciutto in this recipe with streaky bacon instead. I have actually made this salad a few times with bacon, prior to making it with prosciutto.

Make crispy prosciutto bits on the stove. I used the prosciutto fats in the pan to cook shredded cabbage.
Alternatively, you can make the crispy prosciutto in an air fryer. Crumble the air-fried prosciutto when cooled.
Make a simple salad dressing using (low-sodium) soy sauce, a herbed salt & pepper blend, extra-virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegar and lemon juice. You can also add a bit of dijon mustard if you like.
Fill a large plate with ready-to-eat coleslaw salad (or salad greens). Garnish with avocado, cucumber, cherry tomato and scallions. Sprinkle generous amount of crispy prosciutto bits over the salad with the dressing at the side.
