To Make The Dressing:

  • Whisk together all ingredients or put them in a tightly sealed mason jar and shake until well combined.

To Grill The Melon:

To Assemble The Salad:

  • On a large platter, arrange arugula. Top evenly with prosciutto, burrata and melon slices. Sprinkle pistachios on top, then drizzle with dressing.


*If you can't find burrata, you can use fresh mozzarella

You can use a regular grill or a grill pan for the melon
