Cantaloupe Salad with Prosciutto

I had some left over cantaloupe that I wanted to use before it went bad, ditto for some fresh mozzarella, and prosciutto. I started thinking that cantaloupe and prosciutto taste great together, prosciutto and mozzarella taste great together, what tie these three together, basil. Let me tell you, this was light, refreshing and would be great for a brunch menu, plus it only took 3 minutes to put together. Give a whole new meaning to fast food. My only wish is that I keep getting these inspirations when looking in my fridge.

Cantaloupe Salad with Prosciutto

1/2 cantaloupe, cut into 1/2 cubes

6 slices of Prosciutto

2 oz. of fresh mozzarella

4 leaves of fresh basil

Put cantaloupe into a bowl, dice prosciutto into small bite size pieces, add to cantaloupe. Mix in cheese and basil. Serve.


  1. What a lovely mix of flavors and textures!

  2. Reeni- I am glad I experimented with the ingredients, I can't wait to serve it to someone other than myself.
