  1. 1 of 3 Cut pears in half and core them. Peel one pear half, cut into chunks and place in blender with vinegar, mustard, 1/8 teaspoon of the salt and the pepper. Puree until smooth. With machine running, slowly pour in oil; set aside.
  2. 2 of 3 Cut remaining (unpeeled) pear halves into 1/2-inch wedges and place in a large bowl with the spinach. Pour the dressing over top and sprinkle with remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt. Toss gently.
  3. 3 of 3 Place 1-1/2 cups of greens and pears onto each plate. Top each with 1/4 of the prosciutto and 2 tablespoons walnuts. Using a vegetable peeler, peel 5 strips of Parmesan cheese over each plate.
