Honeydew and Prosciutto with Greens and Mint Vinaigrette

Honeydew and Prosciutto with Greens and Mint Vinaigrette

Last week, my sweet daughter took me out to dinner for my birthday and Mother’s day all kind of combined.  We went to our favorite Italian restaurant and I chose what I always choose, Chicken Florentine.  Chicken Florentine, light on the chicken and the Florentine, and heavy on the butter and cheese, just like I like it.  However after having half of it for dinner and the other half for lunch the next day, my body was screaming for something a little less.  A little less cheese.  A little less butter. 

So, I went searching for lightest salad I could find. 

Honeydew and prosciutto with greens and mint vinaigrette

I found Honeydew and Prosciutto with Greens and Mint Vinaigrette in The Bon Appetit Cookbook: Fast Easy Freshin the first course section.  Yes, it was supposed to be a first course, but it was just what I wanted.  I served this with a glass of wine and slice of fresh baked bread.  Heaven. 

Now, if you don’t have the book, (but you should SERIOUSLY), you can find the recipe online:  Honeydew and Prosciutto with Greens and Mint Vinaigrette

Make this.  Really.

    I definitely have those days where my body just NEEDS salads, and light ones at that! This does sound so refreshing!

    Thoughtful daughters are just what we need sometimes! And a great salad is pretty good, too. And this one does look great.

    Anything with prosciutto gets a vote from me! I could eat this often. Can’t wait for honeydews to show up here.

    Oh yeah, this would be my idea of heaven, and I could happily make a meal of this – especially after a couple of days of heavy eating, or right now when I am already over winter food and winter has barely started.
