An Easy AND Classy Appetizer: Prosciutto and Melon

Fruit and meat together? Sounds a bit scary, I know, but trust me! Melon wrapped in prosciutto (an Italian cured ham) is a classic dish that tastes delicious.
It’s a super easy recipe, and perfect if you want to throw a swanky dinner or cocktail party for friends. You only need a few ingredients, a package of toothpicks and a plate. See? Told you it was easy…
Ingredients:
1 Cantaloupe or other sweet melon
1 Package of prosciutto
1 tablespoon of olive oil
Salt and Pepper to taste
If you’re serving this as an appetizer, cut the melon into slices. If you’re serving it as finger food at a cocktail party, cut the melon into bite-sized chunks. The prosciutto should come already sliced paper-thin. Wrap a full strip of it around the melon slices, or trim the meat down to better wrap around the bite-sized melon pieces. Stick in toothpicks to keep the meat in place, drizzle with olive oil, and season with salt and pepper to taste.
Done and done. Now you’ve got a fancy appetizer, and loads of time left over for drink-making!
