Sweet watermelon, crunchy veggies and salty prosciutto and peanuts make for an explosive salad

Heat oven to 400F. Arrange prosciutto in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake until crisp, 8 to 10 minutes.

Trim and discard rind from watermelon. Cut flesh into ¼-inch thick triangles. Place the watermelon in serving dishes and sprinkle with radishes, scallions, mint and peanuts. Drizzle with lime juice and oil. Season with  salt and pepper.
