Equipment

  • immersion blender or other blender
  • melon baller

Ingredients

For the Lemon Salad Dressing:

  • 1/4 cup Coconut Milk
  • 1/4 cup Lemon Juice
  • 1/4 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1/4 cup Fresh Leafy Herbs I used mint and basil
  • 1 clove Garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon Ground Pepper optional, AIP Reintroduction

For the Melon Salad:

  • 2 handfuls Arugula
  • 2 handfuls Baby Kale
  • 1 cup Mozzarella Balls optional, AIP Reintroduction
  • 1 cup Watermelon balled
  • 1 cup Cantaloupe balled
  • 4 slices Prosciutto

Instructions

  • Put all the salad dressing ingredients into a container suitable for an immersion blender.
  • Once blended, set aside and make the salad.
  • To make the salad, layer the arugula, kale, mozzarella (if using), watermelon, cantaloupe and prosciutto on a platter.
  • Serve with the Lemon Salad Dressing.

Notes

  • The melon is supposed to be ‘balled’ using a melon baller but it’s just for aesthetic purposes. Feel free to cut it up into bite size pieces instead.
  • Spinach is a good substitute for the arugula or kale.
  • I prefer an immersion blender to make the dressing but a small blender would work as well.
