Prosciutto, Lettuce, and Tomato Sandwiches

(originally made 2/2010)

In recent years, I've discovered prosciutto.    I bought it for a Cooking Light Chicken Cordon Bleu recipe, then discovered the Classic Italian Panini.   This is a pretty simple idea, but it's such a nice change of pace from a regular BLT.   The doctored up mayo MAKES this sandwich.   I do not like reg mayo, but happened to have some Miracle whip on hand.   

I did not toast the bread under the broiler, and I think next time I would brown up the prosciutto a little in a skillet.     Definitely a repeat recipe and the spread would be delicious on lots of types of sandwiches.
