Crispy Prosciutto and Melon Salad


For the Salad:

  • 1 cantaloupe (honeydew will work nicely as well)
  • 4 ounces prosciutto (either cubed or cut into thin strips)
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil (for sautéing) plus extra to toss
  • handful of fresh mint leaves finely chopped


In a sauté pan, heat the oil and sauté prosciutto until crispy. Set aside and cool to room temperature

Cut melon in half and scoop out the seeds with a spoon. With a melon baller scoop the melon making sure to avoid getting the green close to the skin.

In a bowl, toss together melon, cooled prosciutto, mint and extra virgin olive oil. Serve chilled in either a serving bowl or a hollowed out half of a melon.
