Prosciutto and Melon Salad

Did you know you need to clean your melons before cutting?

Just in case you didn’t know! Make sure to clean your melons before cutting in them! Whenever you are cutting whole fruit, especially melons, you’ll want to wash the outside of the fruit in case there are any harmful germs on the outside of the fruit. Of course you aren’t eating the melon skin, but you are cutting through it, and the knife can transfer bacteria from the skin into the inner flesh as it gets dragged through! Simple scrub with a vegetable brush with warm water as you would potatoes!

    These would really come in handy when my garden starts to produce strawberries and raspberries!

  2. Lisa says:

    Have all the ingredients in the fridge now. This will be dinner for tomorrow. The containers sound amazing, I hate throwing fresh produce out because it spoiled before I used it all. Hate the waste!!

  3. Sarah says:

    I need these to keep my salad fresh! I’m so tired of it spoiling quickly!

  4. Jennifer Essad says:

    Rubbermaid has a genius way to keep our foods fresh – they keep upping their game! I’m going to need 2 or 3 sets for the summer produce we love

  5. Kristina says:

    What a great combination! Can’t wait to try this. I’m going to have to look for these containers too. It’s such a bummer to discard salad greens, berries, etc. just because I couldn’t eat them fast enough.

  6. Heather says:

    I am not familiar with these storage containers, but like the concept. Perfect for the all of the fresh veg, fruit and herbs coming from our garden soon! Thanks for sharing!

  7. Sharon says:

    What a great idea. I’m going look for these the next time I’m at the store. We waste so much food that goes bad before we get a chance to eat it.

  8. Becky says:

    Oh my gosh this salad looks so fresh and “spring-like”!! I can totally see enjoying this outside with friends, or for Mother’s Day!!

  9. Nicole says:

    I’d love to try these out! I’m always looking for ways to extend the life of my greens!

  10. Renee says:

    Looks delicious! I have a few parties coming up I definitely will try this. Thank you!

  11. Jillian Too says:

    I love loading my summer salads with fresh fruit. What a great combination!

  12. Wow, these containers sound amazing!!! And the salad looks delish. You can’t go wrong with prosciutto and mozzarella. Ever.

  13. Amy L says:

    I’d like to try these containers to keep fresh herbs, berries, and lettuce fresh longer. I hate throwing food away.

  14. Theresa A. says:

    Wow! I love that these containers extend the life of produce, that sounds like something I need in my kitchen. I lose too much fruit and veggies due to spoilage. These containers sound awesome!

  15. Debbie says:

    This salad looks amazing! One I must try!

  16. Eva says:

    I hate wasting food, but I often do since my berries and greens (such as salad mixes) spoil so fast. I would definetly use these for lettuce, berries, and my herbs, which are allready coming from the garden!

  17. Kathryn says:

    OMG! This is a perfect combo! Italian meets healthy! I love prosciutto! What brand do you use because I sometimes find it hard to find good quality? Thanks for posting this!

  18. Fran says:

    Would love to try some new storage containers!

  19. Carol says:

    Avocado or no avocado?

  20. Becky says:

    I’m especially interested in trying the Rubbermaid Freshwork containers for clamshell greens (like arugula or other greens called for in this recipe). Seems they easily hold moisture and go bad before I can eat a package.

  21. Karen says:

    Sounds delicious! Storage containers to keep things fresh longer would be fabulous

  22. Rita A says:

    I never seem to have enough storage containers. Using these would help keep veggies fresh and free up more containers for other foods!

  23. Amy says:

    Just got a melon today from the last CSA for our season. Looking forward to trying this recipe.

  24. SARAH SHERMAN says:

    Have seen these but haven’t tried them yet…would love to do so!!

  25. Stephanie Phelps says:

    We love to have fresh veggies on hand at all times and this would save so much!

  26. Pina says:

    Salad looks great one I must try soon!! Would love to try these containers too!

  27. Melody says:

    These would be perfect for storing all the farmers market produce I get!

  28. Can’t wait to try this healthy looking salad soon.

  29. Giant Sis says:

    That salad looks yummy! I hate when I have to throw out fresh produce – these would certainly help!

  30. This looks delicious! I find melon always goes so fast. These containers look like they would last until we finish them!

  31. Hmm it looks like your blog ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any recommendations for rookie blog writers? I’d really appreciate it.|

  32. Megan says:

    This salad looks soooo good! The flavor and texture combinations sound like they would be perfect together. I look forward to giving it a try!

  33. Fanny says:

    IDK why I have an issue with fruit and meat in the same bowl/salad. It turns me off. If I’m presented with such a dish, I usually one, not both.

  34. Christina says:

    These containers look awesome. Can’t wait to try them. Introducing fresh produce into every meal, these would be a huge help in keeping everything fresher longer. And with all the herbs, fruits & vegetables starting to come out of my garden, I’m sure I’m going to be on overload soon.

  35. Nicole Corey says:

    I would love to win these! We go through a lot of produce and it would be extremely helpful to have these prolonging the life of our produce.

  36. Jennifer Hiscoe says:

    These sound amazing. Would love to keep fruit and veggies fresh longer. My girls love the summer fruit!

  37. Jacqueline says:

    Love how fresh the salad looks! Would love to have these for my workday lunches!
