Salad with melon, ham and mozzarella

Now the vacation is over and we're open in business again. The weather is great here in Holland. A lot of people are still enjoying vacation and so for the next couple of weeks we're going to blog a few vacation recipes. They are easy to make, delicious and don't need a lot of utilities.

We start with a light salad: a melon salad. Ideal for lunch (and we enjoyed it very much).

1 cantaloupe melon;
200 grams mozzarella;
2 tablespoons olive oil, extra vierge;
salt en pepper;
raw ham, which is the top of the hams in your vacation area (in Spain the Iberisch ham is one of the best);
fresh basil leaves.

Cut the flesh of the melon in small triangles of about 2 cm. Cut the mozzarella in the same size. Season with salt and pepper at taste. Poor the olive oil on top and mix everything very well.
Cut the basil leaves and mix the through the salad. Put the salad on a plate. Around the salad put a circle of the best raw ham of your vacation area.

It indeed could serve as a dessert, but I just love ice creams in warm weather. But as a lunch recipe it is one of my favourites!
