Mixed Greens with Prosciutto and Cantaloupe

Mixed Greens with Prosciutto and Cantaloupe - A light salad with fantastic flavors!

One of my favorite appetizers has always been prosciutto simply wrapped around a slice of melon. I love a good salty-sweet flavor pairing in just about any kind of dish!

So the other day, I was at the supermarket and walked by a bin of giant cantaloupes, and I started thinking…why not use those same ingredients in a salad? And that, my friends, was the simple inspiration behind today’s Mixed Greens with Prosciutto and Cantaloupe salad.

Mixed Greens with Prosciutto and Cantaloupe - A Family Feast

This fantastic Mixed Greens with Prosciutto and Cantaloupe salad was the perfect answer to my craving for something lighter and healthier to eat – but still super flavorful. We tossed some mixed greens with a fantastic White Balsamic Vinaigrette (see that recipe here), then layered in chunks of sweet, fresh cantaloupe and cut strips of salty prosciutto. A final crumble of goat cheese on top – and this delicious salad is ready to eat!

After I made this Mixed Greens with Prosciutto and Cantaloupe (and after we took the photographs you see here) – my husband Jack immediately devoured half this salad. He also told me that this was one of my best recipe ideas yet! (Hope you enjoy it as much as we do!)
