This brie and prosciutto salad is full of delicious flavors and comes together in no time. Roasted bell peppers, toasted pecans, and a homemade Italian dressing really take this salad to the next level.
This salad is one of those that always feels really fancy and decadent but is really easy to make. I mean adding brie and prosciutto to anything really ups the wow factor.

I love making this salad for when I have guests over. It is really right up there with my Roasted Pear Salad with its tastiness.
How to make the Italian Dressing?
Place all dressing ingredients in a mason jar. Screw on the lid then shake.
It’s that simple.
How to make the prosciutto salad?
- Roast your pecans then set aside.
- Thinly slice your onion, and cut your brie and prosciutto into small pieces.
- In a large bowl add all the ingredients including the roasted bell pepper and mixed greens. Drizzle half of the dressing, toss, then add more dressing if needed!
- Eat to your heart's content!
Best Tips for a Tasty Salad
#1: Brie & Prosciutto is cheapest from places such as Costco or Sam’s Club. Also, if you have and Aldi grocery store check there.
#2: This salad is best eaten the same day you make it.
#3: Store any leftover dressing or salad in the refrigerator. The dressing will stay good for at least a week so enjoy it on any other salad or use it for a marinade!

- 4 oz prosciutto cut into small pieces
- ½ cup pecans toasted
- 1 cup roasted red bell pepper
- ¼ - ½ red onion sliced
- ½ cup olive oil
- 2 teaspoon lemon juice
- 2 teaspoon vinegar
- 2 teaspoon dijon mustard
- 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
- 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
- ½ teaspoon salt

- Combine all dressing ingredients in a mason jar, screw on lid and shake. (½ cup olive oil, 2 teaspoon lemon juice, 2 teaspoon vinegar, 2 teaspoon dijon mustard, 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning, 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes, 1 teaspoon sugar, ½ teaspoon salt, ½ teaspoon pepper, ½ teaspoon garlic powder)
- Set aside while making the rest of the salad.
- Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Add pecans to the lined baking sheet and baking in preheated oven for 5 minutes. Set aside.
- Thinly slice ¼ red onion.
- Slice 4 oz brie.

- In a large bowl add the lettuce, brie, prosciutto, toasted pecans, and roasted bell peppers. Drizzle with half of the dressing, toss, add more dressing if desired.
- You can always add more or less of any of the ingredients.
- I like to make the dressing in a mason jar because it’s easy to shake the dressing before pouring, however you can also add all the ingredients to a bowl and whisk them together before pouring onto the salad.
- The dressing will naturally separate so just shake or stir before adding to your salad.
- Refrigerate any leftover salad or dressing. The salad is best eaten the same day.
