In a large salad bowl, mix together all the salad ingredients except the tomatoes and the Canadian Feta cheese and leave to stand in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.

Arrange the prosciutto and the tomatoes in the base of a large serving plate, sprinkle with half the cheese, then add the refrigerated ingredients for an explosion of colour.

Incorporate the rest of the Canadian Feta, and adjust seasoning if necessary. Decorate with fresh basil leaves.
