Hami Golden Melon, Prosciutto, and Pomegranate Salad

Renée Robinson

Perfectly Simple and Perfectly Delicious!

Here’s a simple salad using hami golden melon, but any similar type – cantaloupe, honeydew, etc. – would work well here, too. I love salads that are simple, but complex in flavor and texture. The soft Boston lettuce combined with the crisp melon, salty prosciutto, sweet dates and bright tart pomegranate arils hits that sweet spot for me. And then adding some toasted hazelnuts simply sealed the deal.

I chose pomegranate molasses, red wine vinegar, and Dijon mustard  for the hit of acid in the dressing. It only needed a little sugar, some salt and pepper, and plenty of olive oil to round out the flavors. 

Sometimes, the easiest things are the most spectacular. The proof is in the pudding with this salad.
