Three Melon, Bocconcini and Prosciutto Salad

Courses: Salads


  • Prep: 20 mins

  • Serves: 6

  • Difficulty: Easy

Inspired on the popular appetizer of prosciutto and melon (prosciutto e melone), this gorgeous and flavourful salad comes together very quickly for an amazing summer starter. Vary the types of melon or even add watermelon, based on what’s freshest and available at your local Farm Boy. Feel free to add radicchio or arugula to make it even more colourful. If you have balsamic glaze, it makes a great finishing touch to this salad.

Directions

  1. In small bowl, combine vinegar, salt and pepper and whisk until salt is dissolved. Slowly start adding the olive oil while whisking to emulsify dressing. Toss greens lightly with dressing.
  2. Arrange greens on platter and scatter melon, tomatoes and bocconcini over the greens.
  3. Tuck prosciutto pieces amongst the melon and cheese balls and garnish with basil and mint leaves.
  4. Drizzle with dressing and serve immediately.
