Wonderful - and these make a very pretty presentation. I personally thought they were a bit too salty, with two slices of prosciutto per serving, but then again, I don't like a lot of salt. DH, who salts everything without tasting first, thought these were excellent! Regardless, they were very tasty and we'll definitely make these again! Made for First Time Tag on FF&F.
