ITALIAN BRUNCH ASPARAGUS



Description:
This is a yummy brunch dish that my niece Nichelle brought to our family Easter brunch.

Ingredients:
* 2 ounces thinly sliced prosciutto
* 1 pound of asparagus
* 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus 2 tablespoons
* Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
* 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
* 1/4 small melon (about 12 ounces) peeled, seeded and cut into 3/4-inch cubes
* 4 ounces fresh mozzarella or burrata cheese, cut into 3/4-inch cubes
* 2 tablespoons pine nuts, toasted (To toast pine nuts, arrange in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake in a preheated 350 degrees F oven for 8 to 12 minutes until lightly browned.)

Directions:
Place an oven rack in the center of the oven. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (using the broiler is fine too). Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the prosciutto in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 12 to 14 minutes until crispy. Drain on paper towels. Chop the prosciutto into 1/4 inch pieces. Place a grill pan over medium-high heat or preheat a gas or charcoal grill. In a medium bowl, toss together the asparagus and 2 teaspoons olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Grill for 2 to 3 minutes each side until crisp-tender. In a medium bowl, combine the lemon juice and 2 tablespoons olive oil. Whisk until combined. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Add the melon and mozzarella cheese and toss until all ingredients are combined. Arrange the asparagus on a platter. Using a slotted spoon, spoon the melon and cheese on top of the asparagus. Drizzle any remaining vinaigrette over the top. Sprinkle the prosciutto and pine nuts on top and serve.
