Melon Salad W/Fresh Mozzarella, Prosciutto and Lime Vinaigrette

Melon Salad W/Fresh Mozzarella, Prosciutto and Lime Vinaigrette created 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!

    Wow this was a big hit.... who would have thought of putting these ingredients together...<br/>I used lime flavored olive oil from Fustini's and it was perfect...everyone raved about it..so glad i doubled up on the recipe.

    Nice flavors, very good! Only one suggestion ... I only used 1 teaspoon to saute the proscuitto. 1 tablespoon would of been too much, but I did use a non stick pan. I also found mini mozzarella balls (fresh), but no flavored, so I used those rather than cutting my own. Same flavor and same result. I love the mini mozzarella balls you can find these days. Otherwise it was wonderful. I served it with seafood, so it made a perfect side. Followed everything else as suggested.<br/>Thx for posting, Kim
