Crispy Prosciutto and Melon Salad

5 from 1 review
  • Author: Mix and Match Mama


This simplest and most delicious salad.  Your menu will thank you!


  • Good quality prosciutto, chopped
  • Romain lettuce
  • Cantaloupe cut into bite-sized cubes
  • Cherry tomatoes, halved
  • Chopped red onion
  • Grated Parmesan cheese
  • equal parts good quality Dijon mustard and Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. In a dry skillet, add in your chopped prosciutto over medium-high heat.  It will only take about 5 or 6 minutes (stirring often) for your prosciutto to crisp up.  Once it’s as crispy as you would like, remove from heat and set aside.
  2. In your bowl, assemble the rest of the salad: lettuce, cantaloupe, tomatoes, and red onion.  Set aside.
  3. In a small bow, whisk together your EVOO and Dijon until it reaches the desired consistency.  Add in a sprinkle of salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Add your crispy prosciutto to your salad, drizzle over your dressing and toss with a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese.  Serve immediately.


This isn’t a recipe, it’s an idea! Depending on how many people you are serving depends on how much of each ingredient you need.  You can even add more or less of something that you love/don’t love as well.  For my salad dressing, I typically add a bit of Dijon to a bowl and whisk in my EVOO with a fork until it reaches my desired consistency.  I sprinkle in a bit of salt and pepper to taste when I’m finished and pour over the salad.  This is more of an idea than a specific recipe.
