Feel free to swap in other fresh fruits, such as blackberries, oranges, raspberries, or mangoes.
Combine lemon juice, honey, shallot, thyme, 1/2 tsp. salt, and red pepper flakes for the salad dressing in a small bowl. Whisk in olive oil and vegetable oil; set aside.
Sauté almonds in butter in a skillet over medium heat until golden, 4–6 minutes. Remove skillet from heat, stir in sugar and salt. Toss nuts to coat.
Sprinkle salt over butter lettuce, Belgian endive, and radicchio to taste, then toss lettuce with the salad dressing until it's evenly coated. Divide lettuce among salad plates. Garnish salads with prosciutto, strawberries, and almonds.
Combine dressing ingredients (except oil) in a bowl. Gradually whisk in oil to blend, or combine all ingredients in a jar and shake vigorously.
Sprinkle sugar over the lightly toasted almonds; toss to coat. You may need to add more melted butter if the nuts are too dry.
If desired, sprinkle a little kosher salt over the clean lettuce leaves. Salt accentuates the flavor of each type of lettuce, and brings out the sweetness of the dressing and fruit.
