Grilled Broccoli Rabe Wrapped in Prociutto

Grilled Broccoli Rabe Wrapped in Prociutto

Serves 8


3 cups young tender broccoli rabe
3 cups assorted tender greens (Swiss chard, escarole, mustard greens, beet greens, chicory, radicchio)
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 to 3 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
Pinch of morash pepper or Aleppo chile
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
18 thin slices of Prosciutto di San Daniele


Cut the broccoli rabe into ½-inch pieces. Pile the assorted greens on top of each other, roll and cut into 1-inch strips. Wash them well and spin dry. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. When the oil is hot, add the broccoli rabe, greens and garlic and toss until the greens have wilted but are still bright green, about 3 minutes. Add two tablespoons water, cover and continue to cook, tossing occasionally until tender and still bright green 3 to 4 minutes. Add vinegar, morash pepper or Aleppo chile and salt to taste.

Lay one slice of prosciutto flat on the counter. Place about 2 to 3 tablespoons of the wilted greens at one end of the prosciutto. Roll the prosciutto up completely to form a cigar shape.

Place on a platter and serve.
