Melon and Crispy Prosciutto Salad


Summertime Summertime Summertime.  Farmers markets, fresh, sun kissed foods that are best eaten simply without a lot of adornment.  It’s picnics and barbecues, beaches, and if you’re lucky some time on a boat.

This salad is so easy that it doesn’t need a recipe, but it hits all the right points for a hot summer day.  With only 5 ingredients – prosciutto, melon, green onion, black pepper, and tuna, the only time it takes is cutting the melon and doing a bit of crisping for the prosciutto.  I made up the tuna part.  It’s ONLY 4 INGREDIENTS.  No tuna.

A little bit of research showed that certain foods can actually help protect you from hot sun and sunburn, as well as keeping you hydrated.  Melon is one of those things!  If you don’t eat prosciutto or bacon, add a little bit of salt.  Regardless of whether you have the prosciutto or opt out, put almonds in a small dish on the side – it tastes amazing together and increases the sun protection factor.
