Prosciutto Melon Salad

A prosciutto melon salad can be best distinguished by its wonderful play on sweet and salty. If you choose your cantaloupe correctly, you’ll be rewarded with a sweet and juicy melon that pairs wonderfully with the delicate, savory prosciutto.


  • 4 large wedges of cantaloupe (rind removed)
  • 4 slices of prosciutto
  • 1 small bunch of basil leaves
  • 2 tbsp. basil oil or olive oil
  • 1 tbsp. balsamic vinegar
  • sea salt and freshly ground pepper


  1. Wrap each cantaloupe wedge with a slice of prosciutto, then plate each cantaloupe.

  2. Mix the oil with the balsamic, before drizzling a small bit over each cantaloupe.

  3. Add a tiny pinch of sea salt and freshly ground pepper to each cantaloupe before garnishing them with some basil leaves.
