Sweet melon, feta and crunchy prosciutto salad

Serves: 4
Cooking Time: 15 mins


  • 30ml (2 tbsp) olive oil
  • 140g prosciutto
  • 1 sweet melon, seeded and sliced into wedges
  • 3 baby red onions, peeled and finely sliced
  • 3 handfuls fresh baby salad leaves
  • 1 fennel bulb, finely sliced
  • handful fresh fennel leaves
  • handful baby radishes (optional)
  • handful baby spring onions (optional)
  • 2 feta wheels, crumbled
  • olive oil/Westfalia Avocado Oil Herb flavoured Infusion, to drizzle
  • squeeze lemon juice
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste



Heat the olive oil in a pan over high heat. Once hot, add the prosciutto slices in batches and fry until crunchy, 1 minute per side. Drain on paper towel.


To assemble the salad, place the melon wedges, red-onion slices, fennel bulb and leaves, baby radishes and baby spring onions, if desired, on a serving platter. Sprinkle with crumbled feta, drizzle with some olive- or avocado oil and add a squeeze of lemon juice. Season to taste, top with the crunchy prosciutto and serve immediately.
