4 slices (1 oz.) thinly sliced prosciutto
1 ripe cantaloupe, halved, seeded, and rind cut off
8 to 10 large mint leaves, sliced thinly
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil


1. Heat oven to 350°. Set a rack over a rimmed baking sheet. Lay prosciutto on rack and bake until crisp, 8 to 10 minutes. Let cool, then break into shards and chips.

2. Shave off ribbons of cantaloupe onto a large serving platter, using a vegetable peeler, mandoline, or very sharp knife. Sprinkle prosciutto and mint over melon shavings. Drizzle oil over salad.
