How to Make Creamy Riced Potatoes


  • 2 tablespoons ice wine (eiswein) or other sweet white dessert wine
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon Champagne vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar, preferably aged
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • One 2-pound cantaloupe—halved, seeded and cut lengthwise into 1/4-inch-thick slices
  • 1/2 pound burrata (cream-filled mozzarella) or fresh buffalo mozzarella, at room temperature, cut into 4 slices
  • 4 thin slices of prosciutto
  • 2 cups baby arugula (1 1/2 ounces)

How to make this recipe

  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.
