Prosciutto and Fig Salad

"When I was growing up in Richmond, Virginia, my parents Ron and Serena Buzzo would host an open house on Christmas Eve. After mass, everyone would come to our house, and we'd have all kinds of appetizers and drinks laid out so it was easy to eat and socialize at the same time. Those parties were very casual and very fun. This salad was a fan favorite and just looks so beautiful when laid out on a big wooden board." - Nicole Glenn, Applegate Vice President of Brand Strategy & Innovation
