APPETIZERS AND SNACKS

Prosciutto-Wrapped Asparagus

2018年8月8日

Back in August, I went to an amazing yoga class at the Botanic Gardens in Denver.  What’s more lovely than practicing yoga outdoors, amongst the flowers and with good friends?  Pairing that evening with delightful snacks and wine afterward.

Each of the lovely ladies who came to yoga brought a snack for the group to enjoy.  I brought my favorite apple and manchego bites with balsamic walnut butter.  And, one of the ladies brought these.

Prosciutto-Wrapped Asparagus

I’ve wrapped asparagus in bacon, but I’d never considered wrapping them in prosciutto.  Um, it’s DELICIOUS.  The saltiness of the ham paired with the roasted asparagus create the most amazing combination.  It feels decadent, like a steakhouse side dish… and it’s incredible easy to make.
