Melon and Ham Salad with Burrata Cheese.

I was a little skeptical to try this.. ham? With melon?? Okay, sure, I love ham & pineapple pizza, but I would have never thought of adding it to a melon salad.

I'm so glad I tried this, I really enjoyed it.

2T white balsamic vinegar
1/2 tsp. minced shallot
1/2 tsp. honey
Pinch of sea salt
2 tbsp. canola oil
1/4 small cantaloupe
1/4 small honeydew
2 oz. thinly sliced ham
4 oz burrata cheese
1/4 tsp. cracked black pepper

Combine vinegar, shallot, honey and salt in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk. Slowly add oil, stirring constantly.

Shave the melons into strips using a vegetable peeler. You should have about 1 1/4 cups each of the melon.

Mix the ham and melon and place on a platter. Top with the burrata cheese and drizzle the vinegar mixture over the top.
