Cantaloupe Mint Prosciutto Salad

My best friend's mother, Lynn, made this salad for me a few years ago and now every time the cantaloupes look like they might be ripe and tasty, I am inspired to make this delicious salad.  It is the perfect combination of salty and sweet that is the perfect refreshing salad with a heavy meal.  In the spring and summer, when I have an abundance of mint growing in the garden it is also the perfect way to use a bunch of the mint....of course a mojito works just as well for that, but you get the point!

Cantaloupe, Mint, Prosciutto Salad

1 cantaloupe, balled
1 bunch fresh mint, cut into strips
1/2 pound thinly sliced prosciutto ham, cut into strips
1 package fresh mozzarella balls, drained
olive oil
salt and pepper

Combine the cantaloupe, mint, ham and mozzarella.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.  Pour a few tablespoons of olive oil over top.  With salad tongs, mix well.  Serve chilled.
