Ingredients

  • 24 asparagus spears
  • 1 cantaloupe
  • 10 oz baby arugula
  • 4 oz fresh Parmesan *
  • 8 oz prosciutto
  • 1 Tbs fig balsamic vinegar *
  • 1 teaspoon honey *
  • 2-3 Tbs olive oil

Instructions

PREP

  • For a practical salad, cut the asparagus, melon and prosciutto into bite-sized pieces. For a pretty presentation, cut the melon into cubes or balls, and leave the asparagus and prosciutto whole.

SAUTE ASPARAGUS

  • Saute in ½ TBS of olive oil (1.5 tsp) until tender, about 5 minutes. Salt and pepper to taste.

MAKE THE DRESSING

  • While the asparagus sautes. Whisk the vinegar and honey together. Slowly add in olive oil while whisking until you reach the desired consistency.

ASSEMBLE & SERVE

  • Toss the arugula with the dressing. Then add in asparagus, melon, prosciutto and top with Parmesan cheese.

Notes

* If you can't find fig balsamic vinegar (or don't want to buy it), you can sub regular balsamic, or make a mustard dressing. To do that replace the mustard and honey with 2 teaspoon whole grain mustard and 2 teaspoon white wine vinegar and mix that with the olive oil.
* Goat cheese would work well too, feel free to sub that in.
