  • Lemon, sliced, optional
  • Mozzarella cheese
  • Sweet basil or peppermint leaves
  • Jamón serrano or prosciutto variety
  • Drizzle balsamic vinegar, reduced if desired
  • Drizzle olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste, optional


  1. Toss together all ingredients together and enjoy!

Here are the sweet basil, watermelon, cantaloupe, and Japanese cucumber plants I have growing in my garden. The melons are just starting out with blossoms on them at the moment. I just put up a garden arch trellis for them to climb this morning. I can’t wait for them to be ready for harvest!
