2 cups arugula (organic, if possible), washed and dried
2 fresh pears, peeled, cored and sliced into 8 pieces each
1/3 lb. prosciutto or serrano ham, thinly sliced
2 T sweet onion, finely chopped
3 T olive oil
1 T vinegar (champagne, chardonnay or red-wine preferred)
Coarse sea salt (such as fleur de sel) and freshly-ground pepper, to taste

You will also need:
Glass for mixing salad dressing
Chopping knife
Nice platter for serving

Put the arugula onto a serving platter.

Wrap each piece of pear with a thin piece of prosciutto or ham. Place each one on top of the arugula. Sprinkle with 1/2 of the onions.

In the glass, mix together the remaining onions, olive oil and vinegar. Add a generous sprinkling of the sea salt and the pepper. Stir until it comes to a nice smooth consistency. Drizze the oil mixture over the prosciutto and pears.

Serve immediately.

Serves 4.
