Pancetta Treasure Salad
Why I Love This Recipe
My husband and I took a cruise of the Mediterranean last summer and we found we loved pancetta, the exquisite mozzarella, and all the delicious food offerings. We've been trying to incorporate foods we tried into our family dishes and I came up with this recipe.
Ingredients You'll Need
1/4 cup Ranch dressing mixed with 2 T. of a creamy style horseradish sauce
Several slices pancetta, fried and crumbled
Tiny golden potatoes, boiled with or without skins and kept HOT
Several chopped medjool dates
Torn buffalo mozzarella

Croutons (freshly made if possible)
Tender salad greens, and romaine lettuce torn for individual bowls.
All amounts are subject to personal taste.
Prepare tender salad leaves in a bowl.
Mix together ranch dressing with the tablespoons of horseradish sauce.
Warm the dressing mixture.
Fry a few slices of pancetta and break it up (like bacon).
Boil some tiny golden potatoes and keep HOT.
Chop a few medjool dates, tear up some buffalo mozzarella, shave some fresh parmesan.
Add all the above to the salad greens, working quickly so it can be served warm.
