This 10-minute light and refreshing Melon Ball Prosciutto Salad is perfect for your next appetizer or side dish.
The flavors of the salad are incredible! The saltiness of the prosciutto combined with the sweetness of the melon compliment each other so well. Adding mozzarella balls with a little olive oil, salt and pepper and garnished with fresh basil bring it all together.
This salad can be made as an appetizer, side dish or even a light lunch. Simply stack the ingredients onto a toothpick or tear the prosciutto into smaller pieces and toss together for a salad. This time around, I chose to separate the meat from the fruit since one of my guests is a vegetarian.
Wondering how to create melon balls?
With a melon baller of course! It is so easy to use. After slicing the melons in half, use the melon baller to scoop out the flesh to make round melon balls. They won’t be perfectly round since the sliced edge will be flat. I love this little tool since I recently found other genius ways to use a melon baller.
