Cantaloupe and Prosciutto Salad with Ice Wine Vinaigrette

  • TOTAL TIME: 20 MIN
  • SERVINGS: 4
  • BASIC-EASY
  1. 2 tablespoons ice wine (eiswein) or other sweet white dessert wine
  2. 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  3. 1 teaspoon Champagne vinegar
  4. 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar, preferably aged
  5. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  6. One 2-pound cantaloupe—halved, seeded and cut lengthwise into 1/4-inch-thick slices
  7. 1/2 pound burrata (cream-filled mozzarella) or fresh buffalo mozzarella, at room temperature, cut into 4 slices
  8. 4 thin slices of prosciutto
  9. 2 cups baby arugula (1 1/2 ounces)
  1. In a small bowl, combine the ice wine, olive oil and Champagne and balsamic vinegars and season with salt and pepper.
  2. In a shallow dish, drizzle the cantaloupe with 1 1/2 tablespoons of the dressing and toss to coat. Arrange the slices on plates. Set a slice of burrata on the melon and drizzle the plates with 1 tablespoon of the dressing. Drape a slice of prosciutto over the cheese. In the shallow dish, toss the arugula with the remaining dressing. Top the salads with the arugula and serve right away.

Suggested Pairing

A slightly sweet wine will add a grace note to this mildly sweet dish. Look for a light, flowery white, such as a Moscato d'Asti or Washington State Riesling.
