    Directions

    For the crispy prosciutto:
    Heat a nonstick saute pan over medium-high heat. Put the prosciutto pieces in the pan and cook until crisp. Remove the prosciutto from the heat and reserve for the green bean and asparagus salad.

    For the warm lemon dressing:

    Put 1 tablespoon olive oil in a pan over medium- high heat. Add the shallots and season with salt. Saute the shallots until tender. Add the almonds, raisins, and olives, and mix to incorporate. Add the lemon juice and honey, stir to combine. Add the remaining olive oil, season with salt and pepper and remove from the heat.

    For the green bean and asparagus salad:

    Cut the green beans and asparagus into 1-inch pieces and put in a bowl. Pour the warm lemon dressing over the green beans and asparagus. Toss to combine and garnish with the crispy prosciutto.
