The recipe for this Italian salad with melon, pancetta, and arugula is pancetta is a delicious combination. Sweet combined with salty, nutty with a delicious balsamic vinaigrette.
This delicious Italian salad filled with ingredients that are commonly used in Italy is very nice. And therefore it's an ideal combination with delicious homemade pasta, spaghetti, or macaroni. By serving it in separate glasses, you get no arguing about who had the most.
I have decorated the salad with edible flowers, just because I like the composition. And borage is also a bit sweet and very tasty.
