Melon Salad with Prosciutto
We made this on Father's Day - it was fantastic!!!!
2 C sliced seeded watermelon
2 C sliced seeded honeydew melon
1/3 C very thinly vertically sliced red onion
2 ripe nectarines, pitted and sliced
1/4 tsp kosher salt
3 T lemon juice
2 T olive oil
1 1/2 T honey
4 C Arugula or Baby Spinach
1/4 C torn fresh mint leaves (optional)
3 oz. prosciutto, very thinly sliced and pulled into pieces
1/2 ounce Romano cheese, shaved.
Combine first 5 ingredients.
Sprinkle with salt.
Combine juice, oil, and honey, stirring well.
Drizzle dressing mixture over fruit mixture; toss gently.
Arrange Arugula or Spinach on a platter - or you can do individual plates.
Top with fruit mixture, then Prosciutto, then cheese.
*You can add one VERY small minced serrano pepper to the fruit mixture, but it makes it VERY hot.
