Watermelon and Crispy Prosciutto Salad

During hot summer nights, the last thing I want to do is eat a heavy dinner.  I crave salads and juicy fruits.  My favorite flavor profiles are salty and sweet so that was the inspiration for this dinner.  I baked the prosciutto in the oven to make them crispy which also brought out it’s saltiness.  It paired beautifully with the sweet juicy watermelon and tart feta cheese.  When I squeezed the lime juice over the salad, it brought out all the flavors in the salad.  It was such a refreshing and zesty salad, perfect for hot summer nights.

For the salad: Watermelon, mache, mint, limes, feta cheese and prosciutto.  I baked 4 slices of prosciutto in the oven at 400 degrees for 15 minutes.
