Rockmelon Bruschetta

INGREDIENTS  

150g goat's cheese  

1/2 teaspoon finely grated lemon rind  

6 slices sourdough or ciabatta bread

6 slices prosciutto  

500g rockmelon sliced thin  

Balsamic reduction   

METHOD  

Lightly chargrill the bread on barbecue or grill plate.   

Spread goat's cheese on top of toast and place one slice of prosciutto on each, followed by a thin slice or two of rockmelon.   

Sprinkle the lemon rind on top and finish with a drizzle of balsamic reduction.   

Fun fact: The potassium in rockmelon sends oxygen to the brain and slows the heart rate, meaning eating the fruit can have a calming effect.
