With its sweet flavour and slight crunch, piel de sapo melon pairs perfectly with smoked meats and creamy cheese. This simple, elegant dish takes just 20 minutes to make and works well as a summery starter or side.
- Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Put the prosciutto on a large baking tray lined with nonstick baking paper. Top with another layer of nonstick baking paper, and then another tray to prevent the prosciutto from curling up in the oven. Bake for 10 minutes, or until the prosciutto is crisp and golden. Break into bite-size pieces.
- Meanwhile, prepare the dressing. Put the olive oil, cider vinegar, lemon zest and juice, and honey in a small bowl; whisk to combine.
- Arrange the melon on a serving platter.
- Scatter over the basil, feta and prosciutto. Season with a few grinds of freshly cracked black pepper, then drizzle over a little dressing. Serve with the remainder on the side for everyone to help themselves.
