Summer Melon with Fig and Prosciutto

    Worthy of a Special Occasion

    This was a wonderful side for a hot summer night. When the weather gets hot, I like to minimize cooking (3rd floor apartment with no AC). This was reasonably quick (just some chopping), healthy, and pretty tasty. Sharlyn melons are not available in any of the area grocery stores, so I just used a mixture of honeydew and cantaloupe. I put the melon, figs, and basil in a large bowl, drizzled about a tablespoon of olive oil over the whole thing, threw in the chopped prosciutto and about 2 ounces of shredded parmesan chesse, and then mixed the whole thing together. It was superb. I served this with roasted red pepper sandwiches (from Cooking Light) as a light summer dinner.
