Salads are good for us, but they’re not impressive. When you make it in a bowl, all the good stuff gets lost and ends up on the bottom. But serve it on a big cutting board and you can see (and access) all the gorgeous toppings. This fig and prosciutto salad board is part lunch, part work of art.


Juice of 1 lemon

1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

⅓ cup extra-virgin olive oil

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

6 ounces spinach

2 large shallots, thinly sliced

4 ounces prosciutto

12 figs, quartered

⅓ cup crumbled blue cheese


1. Make the dressing.

In a small bowl, whisk together the lemon juice and Dijon. Gradually add the olive oil, whisking continuously until the mixture is emulsified. Season with salt and pepper.

2. Toss.

In a large bowl, toss together the spinach and shallots. Add the dressing and toss well to coat.

3. Arrange the board.

Spread the spinach on a large board and arrange the prosciutto and figs on top of it. Finish with a sprinkling of blue cheese. Serve immediately.
