For this salad, which Jean-Christophe Royer describes as his Corsican variation on the familiar prosciutto and melon, he cuts the melon into bite-size pieces and arranges it on a bed of dressed greens with figs, ham and toasted pine nuts.    Terrific Green Salads  

How to Make It

Step 1    

Preheat the oven to 350°. Put the pine nuts in a pie plate and toast in the oven about 7 minutes, or until golden.

Step 2    

Whisk together the olive oil and vinegar. Season with salt and pepper.

Step 3    

Just before serving, toss the lettuce with 1/3 cup of the dressing, reserving the rest to pass with the salad. Arrange the lettuce on a large platter. Top with the cantaloupe, figs and ham. Garnish with the basil leaves, chives and pine nuts.
