Of all the salads, the one with cantaloupe and speck (Italian cured smoked ham) is at the very top of my list. It is simply delicious!
Serves 2 people
1 cantaloupe melon (4 slices x person)
How to choose a melon. There are two things to keep in mind: 1. The smell. A sweet melon smells nice. 2. The colour. It should be a light to dark yellow. If it is green, it is not ripened enough to eat.
8 slices of speck (4 slices x person)
1 bag mixed leaf salad
Fresh basil (as many leaves as you like)
Extra virgin olive oil
Prepare the salad
Put some salad on two plates, add some salt, extra virgin olive oil, add 4 slices of melon with 4 slices of speck on top on each plate, add few leaves of basil and enjoy!
