Watermelon Prosciutto Feta Salad

Refreshing and light, this Watermelon Prosciutto Feta Salad is the best way to chill out on a sweltering day.


Hi, my friends. I hope you’re enjoying this weekend.

This is going to be another short post. Am I getting boring? Too predictable? You’re entitled to think so. This is the 4th post in a row I’ve started this way.

I am so, so sorry! It’s a heat and humid wave has been affecting me. It’s been really bad for a few days. I feel I’m melting away and my brain (Please no jokes. I’ve checked. I have one) is evaporating. Anyways, my brain has been rejecting to cooperate with its owner when it comes to blogging lately. Grrr.

On the other hand, I’ve decided to have another challenging week with 3 recipes to go.

I promise (And you know me. I’m 100%…well 99.3% a trustworthy guy) this is going to be the last time, at least this summer this August.

Besides, it’s going to be quite unique and nice ideas which will need more of my (and hopefully your) attention. Those truly deserve to be the stars. And as you know, there can be only two stars in one week.

This week I’m going to be sharing with recipes which are fewer stars. That would be mostly the ideas rather than recipes. Still, I promise they will be lovely.

Watermelon Prosciutto Feta Salad

To start with, there’s this Watermelon Prosciutto Feta Salad. Well, everyone knows that watermelons are fantastic in salads. They are well-paired with many things such as cheese (feta and goat cheese would be my favorite), herbs, some vegetables, nuts, honey, and certainly deli meats like prosciutto.

And here we go. Watermelon Prosciutto Feta Salad is a delightful and refreshing salad which is ready in just a few minutes.

As the matter of fact, I rarely make melon salads…because I eat enough of them like that. If you’ve never seen a person who can easily live on watermelons in summer, do I need to introduce myself? Seriously, I can have a huge plate for breakfast, lunch, dinner.

If you don’t happen to be such a watermelon fanatic, but you’d like to have a nice salad, well, hopefully, you enjoy this Watermelon Prosciutto Feta Salad.

  1. I don’t hate hot but I sure hate humidity. I just can’t tolerate humid weather, so I know how you feel. Even though it’s not a sweltering day here, but I am happily ready to enjoy this salad. And why not? Well, there are those pretty, refreshing and light, this Watermelon balls. I can’t say NO to anything watermelon — watermelons are fantastic in everything. :)

  2. Ben, I can always count on you to make me laugh! Clearly you have a brain or you wouldn’t be able to come up with such amazing and creative recipes! I second what David said–I’ve heard of prosciutto and cantaloupe, but not watermelon. This sounds so light and refreshing for the crazy heat you’re experiencing. As much as I’d love for you to come visit me in Phoenix, I’m going to tell you now: stay far, far away until the dead of winter :). Have a great week, my friend! And stay cool!

  3. So I’m familiar with prosciutto-wrapped cantaloupe, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen a prosciutto + watermelon combo. But I could totally get on board with this recipe, Ben! I love the idea of incorporating Italian meats into summer salads. Plus, I absolutely love watermelon! This post reminded me to get another watermelon or two before the season is over. (Apple season is right around the corner, and I’m excited about that…but first I need more watermelon in my life!) :-)
