Prosciutto – cantelope salad

Friends.. If you don’t know by now, I’m obsessed with food. All of it.. Shopping for it , growing , cooking it .

( not so much on the dishes, though )

When I was a J&W we had many classes where we studied flavor profiles . We focused at length on why some foods pair well with others.

As well as why some foods do not pair at all

Have you ever brushed your teeth and then drank orange juice?

I rest my case.

So when cantelope was on sale I knew that I had to pair it with proscuitto

There is something about the sweet, crisp taste of the melon paired with the salty, creaminess of the proscuitto… Well it’s a match made in heaven

Here I’ve made a salad with these ingredients, including fresh mint for zip and toasted pine nuts for crunch

1/2 cantelope, cut into cubes
3-4 slices of proscuitto , chopped into small pieces
A few sprigs of mint, leaves picked off
1/4 cup pine nuts, toasted
Sea salt
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar

In a serving bowl , add melon. Top with proscuitto, mint, pine nuts and sprinkle with sea salt .

Add vinegar to small sauce pan and heat, until reduced by half. Drizzle over salad, toss and serve .
