  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1 small cantaloupe or honeydew melon
  • 2 ounces lower-sodium country ham, thinly sliced
  • 4 ounces burrata or fresh mozzarella cheese (for dairy-free, omit cheese or use roasted pine nuts instead)
  • ¼ teaspoon cracked black pepper
  • 2-3 tablespoons bottled Champagne (or blush wine) vinaigrette
  • Optional garnish: thinly sliced fresh basil


  • Place crushed red pepper in a small dry skillet over medium heat. Toast for 90 seconds, stirring frequently. Remove pan from heat and let cool.
  • Cut melon in half lengthwise, remove and discard seeds, and quarter lengthwise. Remove the peel. Shave the melon into strips using a vegetable peeler. Arrange melon strips and ham slices on a platter. Crumble the burrata evenly over top and sprinkle with toasted red pepper and cracked black pepper. Drizzle vinaigrette over top. If using, garnish with fresh basil right before serving.
