To make this Grilled Tropical Fruit Salad with Prosciutto, you’ll want to start with a large platter. Then, intermingle slices of grilled fresh pineapple and sliced fresh mango on the platter. Just before serving, drizzle our fantastic dressing over the fruit and place bunches of thinly sliced prosciutto on the platter as well.
The dressing on this Grilled Tropical Fruit Salad with Prosciutto is made with fresh mint, champagne vinegar, a touch of Dijon mustard and extra virgin olive oil – and the flavor combination is a wonderful complement to the sweet fruit and salty prosciutto.
Once served, cut your fruit and prosciutto into bite-sized pieces and dig in!Print
2 tablespoons champagne vinegar
1 ½ teaspoons agave nectar
¼ teaspoon kosher salt
1 tablespoon fresh mint, chopped plus more for garnish
½ teaspoon Dijon mustard
3 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 ripe pineapple
2 fresh ripe papaya
6 ounces fresh sliced prosciutto
¼ teaspoon fresh cracked black pepper
Make the dressing by combining the vinegar, agave, salt and the one tablespoon fresh chopped mint.
Whisk in mustard then slowly drizzle in the oil while whisking.
Heat grill or grill pan to medium high.
Trim pineapple of top, bottom and outer skin. Use apple corer to remove tough inner stem. Then slice into eight or ten thick slices.
Brush with a little oil and grill on both sides to get grill marks.
Place on a serving platter.
Cut the mangoes in half running a sharp knife around the flat stone on one side then the other. The stone is flat and runs the same shape as the mango so make your cut around the outer edge. Then use a large soup spoon and run between the flesh and the skin.
Once complete, slice on the bias and add to the platter.
Drizzle the dressing over the fruit.
Fold each piece of prosciutto into a mound and scatter over the platter.
Garnish with more chopped mint and the black pepper.
