½ honey dew melon, deseeded and peeled
10 slices of prosciutto – get this sliced fresh and thinly from the deli
Good handful of mint
1 tsp of fresh thyme, leaves picked
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoon of Verjuice
Salt and pepper

Dice up the melons and toss with the picked mint leaves, thyme and torn prosciutto.

Combine the olive oil with the verjuice and season with salt and pepper. Pour this over the salad just before serving.

Serve with grilled or barbecued fish or chicken or with torn buffalo mozzarella.
