- ¼ pound prosciutto or speck (smoked prosciutto)
- ½ pound of asparagus trimmed
- 1 cup of arugula
- 2 tablespoon shallot vinaigrette (my house dressing) or your favorite vinaigrette
- Fresh ground pepper

Thinly slice prosciutto (8–10 slices). Blanch asparagus and chill. Toss arugula with vinaigrette. Lay out 1 slice of prosciutto. Put 2–3 asparagus spears horizontally along with the arugula. Finish the rest of the asparagus roll ups and chill for ½ hour. When ready to serve, slice on the diagonal and arrange on platter. Sprinkle with olive oil and fresh pepper. Garnish with chives.
