A little tidbit about myself is that I get addicted to certain snacks and will eat the same thing almost everyday for months until I have a new snack that wins my favor. It might be nachos (an old standby), rice crackers and goat cheese, hummus and chips, brie with apples, greek salad with feta . . . as you can see cheese is often a main component. I also love a sweet and savory mix and right now I can't get enough cantaloupe and prosciutto with goat cheese.
Last week I bought a cantaloupe, sliced it open and it was just perfect for this little salad and with spring in the air I found myself bringing this one back into rotation. It's so simple, which is probably the governing factor for any of my snacks of choices. There's many variations on this so feel free to add or take away if you don't have your own recipe already. For mine I use cantaloupe and prosciutto (obviously) - I prefer a crisp but sweet cantaloupe for this recipe and my prosciutto cold, straight from the refrigerator. I drizzle a little olive oil, crumble some herbed goat cheese and top it off with fresh french mint leaves. Fresh ground peppercorns can be added as well but I can't seem to add pepper to my melons. You could also use basil or feta as alternates to the mint and chèvre cheese, or add a little honeydew to the mix.
Do you have any favorite sweet & savory salads? I'll probably be in the market for a new one in a couple months : )
