Instructions
  1. To make the vinaigrette, mix the orange juice, vinegar, mustard and orange zest in a small bowl. Whisk in the oil until thoroughly combined.
  2. Place the lettuce in a large bowl. Drizzle the vinaigrette over the lettuce and gently mix to coat. Divide the lettuce among four serving plates.
  3. Quarter the figs lengthwise. If desired, use a sharp knife to make small incisions just underneath to skin to make it easier to remove the flesh when eating.
  4. Place the figs beside the lettuce. Arrange the prosciutto strips and basil over the figs and shave the parmesan over the top to serve.
Recipe Notes

Tip: If fresh figs are not available, you can substitute dried figs- coarsely chop one soft, dried fig per person and sprinkle over the salad.
