Summer Melon Salad with Prosciutto & Mozzarella

Print

Want to know one of my favorite things about summer? All the fun and fresh produce! And while most people associate watermelon, peaches, cherries, etc. with the summer season, I bet you didn’t know about the wide variety of melons that are also in season too! (Good that makes two of us…at least that was until this year! 😉 ) But I came across a few interesting varieties while out shopping the other day and they were just begging to be whipped up into this refreshing Summer Melon Salad with Prosciutto and Mozzarella!

This is such an easy summer salad made with 2 types of melons, salty prosciutto, creamy mozzarella and fresh basil all tossed in a simple lemon vinaigrette! It’s the perfect refreshing side dish or appetizer!

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

The health benefits of galia melons include their ability to help in weight loss, boost the immune system, improve vision and digestive processes, protect heart health, and help in curing diabetes. It also has anticancer potential.
