Countryside Parma Ham Melon

‘ Lunch is served by the lake in between blueberry bushes and trees´

August is quickly approaching and soon it’s time to head out back to the countryside and at the end of the month we are off on holiday to celebrate our anniversary! Meanwhile, I wanted to share some salad inspiration that takes minutes to make, and tastes gorgeous too. It really is just a classic intake on parma ham melon with a few summer add-ons. Instead of cantaloupe melon, I used a sweet and juicy honeydew that is roughly sliced into a large serving bowl. On top of each slice, add slithers of parma ham. Spoon a few avocados all over and scatter baby spinach leaves into the mix. Add parsley and thyme and drizzle some lemon vinaigrette on top. The dressing is made from simple ingredients including fresh lemons, olive oil, Dijon mustard, honey and garlic and takes a few minutes to make! Serve with chilled pale rosé and have a wonderful summer lunch!
