The sun is shining

Mmmmm Watermelon...
Who doesn't love watermelon when the weather starts to look the way it does?! Ok, maybe somebody does, but I don't know anyone.

In searching some watermelon recipes I came accross this one on Martha Stewart's Real Simple web site, and couldn't be more excited to share it with you. The combination of mint and watermelon will have your taste buds satisfied after a long sunny Saturday, and it takes almost no time to make (bonus!).

So here it is:

4 ounces thinly sliced prosciutto
3 pounds watermelon (including rind)
6 radishes, quartered
4 scallions, sliced
1/4 cup fresh mint, torn
1/4 cup salted peanuts, chopped
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
kosher salt and pepper

1) Heat oven to 400° F. Arrange the prosciutto in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake until crisp, 8 to 10 minutes.
2) Trim and discard the rind from the watermelon. Cut the flesh into 1/4-inch-thick triangles. Place the watermelon in serving dishes and sprinkle with the radishes, scallions, mint, and peanuts. Drizzle with the lime juice and oil. Season with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper.
3) Break the prosciutto into pieces and sprinkle over the salad before serving.
