Watermelon + Prosciutto + Mint Salad

Well, you won’t find a more refreshing mix than this one for a salad. This salad screams SUMMER and I love it!!!
Take 15 minutes out of your busy day and make this. You will love it too. And if you don’t, you can drop it off at my house so I can eat it.
If you are hosting a party, I promise that your guests will be impressed with this mix as well.
Play around and mix this up with various seasonal ingredients; add cantaloupe, peaches, blackberries, and even your favorite crumbled cheeses. Pure deliciousness and OH so fresh and light.
I served this with a soft boiled egg for brunch. I also made it as a side dish for steak and have used it as an appetizer too.
Hope you like it as much as I do!
