This might seem like a strange one, but trust me, it works. The more conventional pairing would be prosciutto and cantaloupe, but for those of us who don't eat ham, smoked salmon and cantaloupe might be an interesting combination to try. I'm sure there will be some who find this combination too wild for their tastebuds though. In any case, this is a very loose recipe, as salads go, so feel free to make adjustments based on your preferences.
Ingredients (serves 2):
¼ of a small cantaloupe, sliced or in chunks, to your preference
10-12 small, fresh mozzarella balls
100g smoked salmon
some leafy greens of your choice
1 tbsp honey
2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 tbsp olive oil
some fresh mint leaves, shredded
Arrange and layer the cantaloupe, mozzarella balls and smoked salmon on the salad leaves.
In a small bowl, combine the honey, lemon juice, olive oil and fresh mint. Whisk and then drizzle over the salad. Scatter some more fresh mint on top if you wish.
