Melon, country ham and parmesan salad

Right now, this melon salad is my favorite lunch. It comes together in no time and is really refreshing, light and delicious. The melon salad is another way to present this sun-kissed fruit that we love to taste as an appetizer with country ham. Thus, it becomes a main dish and it is a place that suits it perfectly.

The slices of melon are accompanied by arugula, country ham of course, but also shavings of parmesan and olives. All that’s missing is a few drops of sherry vinegar and a nice drizzle of olive oil to sit down to eat and enjoy.

01/07/2020: this salad remains one of my favorite summer salads. I always add a few roasted pine nuts.
Rather than country ham, I also like to use speck or bresaola.
