Pistachio Melon and Prosciutto Salad with Honey Vinaigrette

I’ve been having so much fun experimenting with salads lately. I used to be extremely boring and every time I made a salad I included red grapes, apples, and walnuts. That was it. That was my go-to. But this month, I’ve been having salads nearly every night for dinner and I have yet to repeat a salad. And let me tell you, it’s fun! Most recently, I made this pistachio melon and prosciutto salad which was incredibly good.

Melon and Prosciutto SaladThere are so many good things going on in this salad. And I don’t just mean good for you, which it absolutely is. But when I say “good” I mean that you will be smiling with every single bite that you take.

One of my favorite snacks to make is honey, melon and prosciutto stacks. So, taking that flavor combination and putting it into a salad was an idea that I really should have thought of sooner.
