This is a very simple recipe which can be prepared in 15 minutes, perhaps less. The concept of the dish is combining the saltiness of prosciutto with the sweetness of pear, and those 2 flavors are really heavenly together. For the best results, you will want to select perfectly ripe pears, so take your time to choose nice ones. You will not want anything too hard, nor will you want over-ripe pears which are turning squishy.

As for the prosciutto, choose Prosciutto di Parma or another good quality prosciutto, since this recipe has few enough ingredients so the taste each one is going to be very apparent. The prosciutto may be swapped for ham if you wish. Just use something you like the flavor of. Divide this meat between 4 serving glasses and then prepare the dressing.

If you are not keen on mustard, feel free to swap it for a minced small garlic clove or even a tablespoon of crumbled blue cheese. You can also use half mayo and half sour cream if you wish.
