Easy, tasty and healthy melon and prosciutto starter

The taste of Italy… Looking for an inspiration for your traditional summer salad? This Summer Melon with San Daniele Prosciutto and mozarella recipe blends sweet fruit with salty prosciutto for a fresh and tasty side dish. Drizzle each serving with a little olive oil, aged aceto balsamico, and garnish with the shaved Parmiggiano Reggiano cheese.


  • 1 sweet melon, peeled, halved and seeds removed
  • 100 g thinly sliced San Daniele prosciutto
  • Mozarella
  • ¼ cup (60 ml) olive oil
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • 20g Parmiggiano Reggiano cheese shavings
  • Bunch of basil leaves


Cut the melon into pieces. Arrange the melon pieces and San Daniele prosciutto on a serving plate or board. Add Mozarella 3 cm cubes. Keep chilled. When ready to serve, drizzle with olive oil (and balsamic reduction) and sprinkle with parmesan shavings. Decorate with basil leaves.
