Prosciutto Wrapped Cantaloupe Salad

Not much of an explanation is needed in explaining how to make this salad. I think the picture speaks boldly! Aren’t the colors beautiful? All the flavors are present with cantaloupe donating its sweet juiciness, prosciutto giving the salt, and onions some bite, all over a bed of crispy romaine. Serve with your favorite Italian dressing and watch the entire platter disappear. We served this salad alongside homemade pizzas- Cappicola and Pineapple, Sopressata and 6 Italian Cheeses, and Spicy Pepperoni and Cheese– Cava with a raspberry dropped in (because all girls like a little bubbly and ruby red bling), Belgian bier for the boys, then followed with S’mores done over the fire on our patio. A great night with friends! So much so we chatted well into the night. Oh and the Buckeyes my friend Alison made were excellent for S’mores- and breakfast the next morning. Thanks Alison and Dan!

    Melon and prosciutto … always reminds me of that Northern Exposure episode where Holling begs to cater a wedding and then does everything on the cheap. He substitutes canned apricots and canadian bacon, and tries to convince everyone it's just as good. Cheers!

    An old classic! Funny, just this weekend I had a craving for it. I guess it's summer that brings it on because it is so fresh tasting.
