Melon Ball Prosciutto Salad is a colorful, fresh, flavor-packed salad that you can make in minutes.
It’s perfect for a light lunch or even for breakfast.
Simple, summery, sweet, salty, stylish – it doesn’t matter how many “S” words I use to describe this colorful salad – it’s just downright fresh and delicious. I get excited when it’s “melon season”. I can tell when I walk past a large display at the market and I can smell the fresh sweetest. And then I dream about that sweet melon wrapped in bites of salty briny prosciutto. (Is anyone else getting warm or just me? smile)
Now that you are ready to run to the market and pick up a few fresh aromatic melons, be sure to use them the same day or the day after for peak freshness. I like to serve this as an appetizer, salad but my favorite way is just for breakfast. Can you imagine waking up to this?
