4 large handfuls of salad greens
12-16 cherries, pitted and halved
3 1/2 ounces of prosciutto or thinly sliced cured coppa, ham, or speck
1/2 -1 teaspoon of mustard
2 tablespoons of olive oil
2 teaspoons of red wine vinegar
3 tablespoons of heavy whipping cream
salt & freshly ground pepper

Combine the dressing ingredients in a small bowl and beat gently with a whisk or fork (until just combined and creamy; don’t overwhisk as you don’t want to end up with whipped cream).

Toss the salad leaves with the prosciutto in a large bowl. Sprinkle cherries on top; drizzle dressing over salad and serve.
