Cantaloupe and Prosciutto Salad

During the summer months I enjoy indulging in fresh sweet fruit.  One of my favorite combinations is prosciutto and melon.  Whatever tasty greens you have on hand will work in this tasty cantaloupe and prosciutto salad recipe. Sweet, juicy melon and dry, cured ham is a classic flavor combination that makes for a surprisingly filling entree salad.  Make sure you purchase Prosciutto de Parma for the best flavor.

This cantaloupe prosciutto salad can be changed and customized with your favorite vinaigrette – try a raspberry or peppercorn version for an added punch.

Serves 4

5 PP per serving



  •        4 cups of your favorite greens
  •        1/2 cantaloupe, peeled, seeded,           and thinly sliced
  •        8 thin slices prosciutto
  •        4 tablespoons Litehouse brand            red wine and olive oil vinaigrette





Arrange 1 cup of your favorite greens on chilled plates. Layer the cantaloupe and prosciutto slices on top of the greens. Drizzle each of the salads with 1 tablespoon of vinaigrette and serve the salads cold. DSCN1037

My salad dressing counted for 3 PP per tablespoon.  You can adjust the PP based on your favorite dressing.  What types of dressings would you try on the salad?

Always laugh when you can. It is cheaper than medicine…”
