Melon, prosciutto and cheese salad

I love making salads over the summer. This melon, prosciutto and cheese salad combines fruit, dairy and meat that may seem a bit odd but yet delicious!


I am in down South Spain until July 12th and the heat is pretty intense. We are in a small town in the Cordoba region called Moriles, visiting family and friends and having a lot of fun. The food is outrageous and the kids are having a blast. The only down side is that we don’t have internet where we are staying and it is starting to become a real challenge.

Anyhow, because of the heat, baking is pretty much out of the question and cooking needs to be super quick. Salads are very predominant in the Andalucia region so I figured I post this recipe that it is very refreshing and easy to put together. This melon, prosciutto and cheese salad is just perfect for the hot weather we are having!

You can omit the kiwi if you like, I love kiwi so I just added a some. Also, take note that this salad needs to be eaten immediately. Do not let it sit or keep leftovers, the prosciutto and cheese becomes soggy and nasty!

You can substitute any of the ingredients,. You can use feta cheese instead of hard cheese, or maybe add other type of fruits. I think instead of using kiwi water melon maybe good as well. Either way, you can make this exact version or make your own. If you need a refreshing, quick and healthy salad, look no further. You will love this one.

OK so now, the winners of both of my eBooks. For those that have won, email me so that I can send you the links so that you can download both the eBooks and save it to your computer and mobile device.

On another note, since it has been quite hard to stay connected to the internet since we don’t have it where we are staying, I might take a few days before my next post. It is starting to become a real challenge, so even when trying my best, a few extra days between posts make take place.

For now, here you have this refreshing salad that I hope you like.

Stay safe and enjoy!




Melon, prosciutto and cheese salad

Miryam's original recipe

Yield: 4-5 servings

Total Time: 15 minutes


  • Half a melon, chopped
  • 4 oz of prosciutto, sliced
  • 3-4 slices, 4oz, hard cheese, I used Manchego
  • .5 oz fresh mint, chopped
  • 3 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 lemon, juice
  • 2 kiwis, chopped, optional


In a large bowl mix all of the ingredients and serve immediately.

Don't reserve any leftovers. The prosciutto and cheese wilts and the salad losses its appeal.

  3. Thank you MIiryam for a great gluten free Pizza. :P

  4. My family absolutely hates the licorice like aftertaste from Truvia or any Stevia product. Would sugar change the handling of the cookie dough?

  5. This looks very good. I have one question though. How does the dough crust taste? And could you bake it so that it would be crisp?

  6. Thanks! Also, If baked, would it still need to be chilled? And is it okay to chill overnight?

  7. Hi this looks great, is the serving size one pizza? Or if not how many does it serve with regards to the nutrition info?

    Also I live in the UK and we don’t really have applesauce, is there anything else I can use?

  8. The amt of ingredients is enough for 2 pizzas. You can microwave or boil peeled chopped apples and then puree them yourself with a little bit of water. I hope this helps!

  9. It’s amazing! I should make some for me and my friend :)

  10. I cant wait to try this. Thanks for sharing.
