I'm sure you don't is my answer but we all need a bit of inspiration sometimes...whether its with what combination goes well together or with what flavours are good for the dressing. This combination of salty prosciutto,tangy goats cheese and refreshing melon is yummy with this sweet and tangy dressing .This step by step method is just a guide to help and then you can adjust it for your families tastes. The photos allow you to build up the Salad layers to enhance the flavours. Why not have a try at this and let us know how you got on in the comments below. We love to hear your thoughts x
