Melon Salad W/Fresh Mozzarella, Prosciutto and Lime Vinaigrette

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by SharleneW

This is an interesting combination of flavors--not your usual fruit salad. I was sceptical at first, but I have always had great success with recipes I found in Cusine at Home, so I went for it. It was very good--refreshing and unusual. The basil and mint flavors as well as the prosciutto are all very subtle.

Great! Made it once for the family, making it tonight for book club. The biggest change I made is that I didn't fry the proscuitto (in fact, the first time I made it I just plain old lunch meat ham and it was still good). Thanks for a great recipe!
