Ingredients

Salad

  • 1/2 cantaloupe seeds removed and cut into large bit-size chunks
  • 3 slices prosciutto torn into large pieces
  • 1/2 ball burrata (or buffalo mozzarella) torn into bite-size pieces
  • 3 cups arugula

Dressing

  • 2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 5 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • salt - fleur de sel dash
  • freshly grated black pepper dash

Instructions

  • Prepare the salad ingredients - slice the cantaloupe in half, remove the seeds, cut into six slices and slice into large bite-size pieces; tear up the prosciutto. Place into a medium bowl. Add the torn pieces of burrata (it will be a bit messy - be sure to lick your fingers :)).
  • Make the vinagriette - whisk the lemon juice and olive oil together. Finish with salt and pepper. Pour 2/3 of the dressing on the cantaloupe mixture.
  • Place the arugula in a small bowl and toss with the remaining dressing of lemon juice and olive oil mixture.
  • Choose two plates for each serving.
  • Place the dressed arugula on each place and top with the salad. Enjoy.
  • What is the difference between mozzarella and burrata? Burrata is a both mozzarella and cream. While on the outside burrata looks and is solid mozzarella cheese, on the inside it contains stracciatella and cream, giving it an unusual, soft texture. Truly a decadent choice and elevates the salad beautifully. :)
