Cantaloupe and prosciutto is a classic Italian combo that works together perfectly in this pasta salad.
The salty crisp flavor of the prosciutto is a match made in heaven for the musty sweet and juicy melon. Such a good match, in fact, that prosciutto wanted to run away to Vegas and get married. But the cantaloupe wasn’t having any of that, she wanted her family at the wedding. She said, “We can’t elope!”
Okay, sorry about the cheesy joke. But that’s seriously my all-time favorite fruit related joke! And believe me, I am somewhat of an expert on fruit humor.
The way you cut this cantaloupe is very important. The idea here is to mimic the shape of the pasta.
Tossed in some olive oil, red wine vinegar, and marjoram.
Pasta and prosciutto join the party.
Super fresh and summery. Salty from the prosciutto, sweet from the melon, and floral from the marjoram.
