Cantaloupe Arugula Salad with Blue Cheese and Prosciutto - recipe by media registered dietitian nutritionist and president of 80 Twenty Nutrition

It’s as simple as combining the ingredients and tossing with dressing. Done and done. It’s also impressive enough for entertaining or bringing to a barbecue or potluck.

This salad is perfect for anyone who is gluten-free.

If you want to make this salad vegetarian, just leave out the prosciutto. If you want it to be paleo, just leave out the cheese.

There are a few substitutions you can make if you don’t like the bitterness of arugula or the funkiness of blue cheese. I’ve made this using spinach and feta cheese and the results are different – but just as good – and more crowd-pleasing if you’re going to serve this to kids.

I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
