Arugula, Melon and Prosciutto Salad

I have a confession: I hate packing lunch. It just is something that I don’t like to do but I know I should because it is so cost effective, and is generally much healthier and tastier than the crap on campus. This is a delicious seasonal salad I made over the summer and plan to make again now that school has started. It’s super easy and quick to make. Due to the flavors you don’t even need dressing, in my opinion.

Seriously, the prosciutto is salty, the arugula is spicy and the melon is fresh and slightly sweet. I’ve been very into Papaya Melon in the past few weeks. It’s been available at the Santa Monica Farmers Market and it tastes like a lightly sweetened and kind of tastes like honeydew. Literally, all I do is lay down a bed of arugula, chop up some melon and add three strips of prosciutto.

At lunch I just mix it up.

Done and done. Now that I have reminded myself how easy it is to make this lunch I will be getting myself together enough to bring lunch to school next week. I totally didn’t get it together to make lunch this week.

Any ideas for quick, go to lunches? I’m always looking for new ideas.
