  • Watermelon, thinly sliced
  • Goat cheese
  • Arugula
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Fresh cracked pepper


Step 1

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Step 2

Lay prosciutto on a parchment-lined tray, curling into little individual bundles to avoid burnt edges.

Cook for about 7 minutes, checking frequently.

Remove from tray and cool on rack.

Once completely cooled, crumble your prosciutto and set aside.

Step 3

In a separate bowl, mix pesto and extra virgin olive oil until thin and drizzly (like a dressing).

Step 4

Lay your thinly sliced watermelon in a single layer on a plate.

Season generously with fresh, cracked pepper.

Plop little balls of goat cheese across the watermelon.

Sprinkle on toasted pine nuts and crumbled crispy prosciutto.

Top with a handful of arugula.

Drizzle with pesto dressing.
