Watermelon Salad

We ate this salad last weekend, and it reminded me that it is absolutely one of my favorites. Especially on a hot, sunny day. Yum!

Watermelon Salad with Mint and Crispy Prosciutto
Real Simple

Serves 4
Hands-On Time: 25m
Total Time: 25m

4 ounces thinly sliced prosciutto
3 pounds watermelon (including rind)
6 radishes, quartered
4 scallions, sliced
1/4 cup fresh mint, torn
1/4 cup salted peanuts, chopped
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
kosher salt and pepper

Heat oven to 400° F. Arrange the prosciutto in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake until crisp, 8 to 10 minutes.

Trim and discard the rind from the watermelon. Cut the flesh into 1/4-inch-thick triangles. Place the watermelon in serving dishes and sprinkle with the radishes, scallions, mint, and peanuts. Drizzle with the lime juice and oil. Season with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper.Break the prosciutto into pieces and sprinkle over the salad before serving.
