Crunchy prosciutto and juicy melon salad

Prosciutto e melone is one of those unexpected combinations that work extremely well, and it’s the a perfect antipasto, and the very simplest imaginable. So I wanted to transform this match into a salad.

Ingredients
Mixed greens (arugula and romaine will do)
Chunks of cantaloupe
Prosciutto
Parmigiano reggiano cheese

Slices of rosemary focaccia genovese

Basil Rémoulade
2 Tbsp basil Dijon mustard
½ cup heavy cream
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1 Tbsp Olive oil
Salt and pepper

Just put nice chunks of cantaloupe right on top of the mixed greens. Add the crunchy prosciutto and a touch of grated parmigiano reggiano cheese. Put some slices of focaccia on the side. Season with my basil rémoulade. A nice touch is to warm up the rémoulade in a saucepan just before adding the lemon juice.
