A prosciutto salad with smoky grilled vegetables is a deliciously light and tasty pairing.  Perfect as a weeknight side dish alongside chicken or fish, these warm vegetables and silky prosciutto will melt in your mouth.  This prosciutto salad also works perfectly as a light lunch—just skip the grilling of the romaine and add it in right before eating.
