Melon, Pesto and Burrata Salad

This is the only salad you're going to want to eat all summer! You could really use any type of melon for this recipe, but my personal favs are cantaloupe and watermelon!

Cantaloupe Melon, Pesto and Burrata Salad

To say sweet and savoury combos are my jam, would be an understatement! This salad with sweet cantaloupe, creamy burrata + the saltiness from the speck and pesto, is legit the most perfect combination.

Honey dew melon would also be a great alternative! Honestly, just buy whats on sale or looks the best!

Melon, Pesto and Burrata Salad

Serves 3-4

What you'll need:

1 small cantaloupe (or other melon), peeled, guts removed & thinly sliced

1 Persian cucumbers, thinly sliced

1/4 cup pickled red onion or thinly sliced raw red onions

1/3 cup pesto, store-bought or homemade

8 slices of speck (or prosciutto)

Juice of 1/2 lemon

1 ball of burrata cheese

Good quality extra virgin olive oil, for drizzling

Flaky sea salt

Fresh cracked pepper


Layer the thinly sliced cantaloupe onto a serving platter along with the thinly sliced cucumber. Scatter 1/4 cup pickled (or raw) red onions over top, followed by dollops of pesto and the sliced prosciutto. Squeeze the juice of the lemon over the salad, followed by a good drizzling of olive oil and finish with flaky sea salt and fresh cracked pepper. Place the ball of burrata right in the middle and break it open at the table.

Enjoy, my friends!
