Delectable Summer Salad!

I made this salad exactly according to recipe tonight and it was SO delicious!  I live in the South and always dread cooking dinner when it's hot outside, so thought I'd go outside my comfort zone this year and do 30 days of salads for dinner.  I was skeptical that I would like this salad....I'm only so-so on melons to begin with.I used honeydew and bought it already cut up from the produce department...which saved 15 minutes.  I had a tough time finding fresh mint in our small town grocery store, but was finally able to find some.  This recipe only took me a maximum of 10 minutes to put together and was perfect as written.  I did not add/remove/substitute any ingredients; however, next time I think I'll add another half to full Tablespoon of vinegar and reduce the honey.  I really liked the play of the prosciutto (great idea to crisp in the microwave!  I would have never thought of that) against the arugula and melon, and the feta and pistachios rounded it out beautifully.  I will be taking the rest of it to work with me tomorrow!

I tried this recipe with cantaloupe. It was delicious -- a perfect summer salad -- with a refreshing balance of sweet and salty. http://www.themostcolorfulone.com/1/post/2013/08/melon-crispy-prosciutto-salad.html
