In this season of dieting, I wanted to talk a little about this new salad for those who don’t like tomatoes or greens.
A traditional Caprese Salad has mozzarella, tomato, and basil and it’s delicious, but not everyone likes tomatoes. My husband for example really doesn’t like them and I don’t always want a traditional green leafy salad so finding this was a major win for my home.
I would like to give credit to the website I found this on, but unfortunately, this recipe was removed and I had to remember it from scratch. I’ve seen variations on this where people have added basil or mint, and even balsamic vinegar, but I’m going to give you the recipe I like to put together when I want a sweet and savory meal. This salad serves 4.

1 ripe Cantaloup
4 ounces of Mozzarella
4 ounces of Prosciutto.
Optional: Balsamic Vinegret, mint, basil
1.) This is a rather straight forward recipe. Simply scoop out the seeds and either chop it up or use a melon baller to scoop out pieces of the melon. If you’ve never had this fruit you’re going to want to treat it a little like a watermelon in that you don’t eat the rind and it should be removed.
2.) Each serving gets one ounce of the mozzarella and the prosciutto.
3.) That’s it and it’s 367 calories per serving which makes it a perfect meal!
This is also easy to pack lunch for the office and one that does well in the fridge. I really hope you enjoy this meal. Please let me know what you think of it in the comments below!
