  • 1 pound asparagus - trimmed and cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 4 slices prosciutto
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons minced shallot
  • ½ teaspoon kosher or fine sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • ½ pound snap peas - cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 cup radish micro greens
  • cup slivered almonds


  • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and add the asparagus. Boil the asparagus for 1-2 minutes, until bright green and slightly tender. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the asparagus to an ice bath. Drain once cooled.
  • Meanwhile, place the prosciutto in a large skillet and bring to medium heat. Cook the prosciutto, turning often, until it is brown and crispy, about 5-6 minutes. Drain on a paper towel-lined plate, then break the prosciutto into small pieces.
  • Whisk the olive oil, balsamic vinegar, shallot, salt, and pepper together in a large bowl. Add the asparagus, snap peas, and micro greens, and toss until well dressed. Top with the prosciutto pieces and almonds and serve.
