Broccoli and Cauliflower Salad


Not a traditional Italian salad, but one that is a nice diversion from the expected fare.


  • 1/4 pound prosciutto, minced
  • 1 teaspoon Filippo Berio olive oil
  • 2 cups broccoli florets
  • 2 cups cauliflower florets
  • 1/2 cup shredded radicchio leaves
  • 1 small red onion, thinly sliced into rings
  • 1/2 cup toasted pine nuts
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries (Optional)
  • 2/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  1. Crisp the prosciutto in a small frying pan in the olive oil. Drain the pieces and set aside.
  2. Blanch the broccoli and cauliflower florets in boiling water for two minutes; drain and place in salad bowl. Let cool, then add remainder of the ingredients.
  3. Whisk the salad dressing together in a small bowl. Pour over the salad and toss well. Crumple up the cooled prosciutto and sprinkle it over the top and serve.
  4. Note: You may substitute pancetta for the prosciutto, if desired.
