Something we ate in excess while in Italy was the classic combination of melon and Parma ham. We were craving this combination of salty and sweet when we returned so, as soon as the melons started appearing on the shelves, we made our family this fresh salad. We added creamy buffalo mozzarella and peppery rocket to the melon and Parma and enjoyed it in Maketu.
- To make the salad, take a piece of the Parma ham and wrap it around a piece of melon.
- Repeat this for each piece of melon.
- Add the salad leaves to a bowl with the mozzarella.
- Dress with the olive oil, balsamic and season with salt and pepper. Place the pieces of melon in the salad to serve.
