A classic combination by pairing sweet melon with savory prosciutto, making it a delicious appetizer.
The summer holidays have officially come to an end with Bella and Jamie starting school last week. I hope everyone had a great summer. We definitely had a great one that was filled with fun camps, birthday celebrations and traveling.
You may have noticed that I took the entire summer off from blogging and some of my friends have been asking why haven't they seen any post from me lately. We have been busy having fun and making memories but now, I am back in the swing of things. However, I still like to take things easy. So, I'm just going to start by sharing a super simple recipe, or rather more like a serving suggestion, that my family loves.
Melon with Prosciutto di Parma is a perfect summer dish. It is so easy to put together that I cannot even recall how many times we had this dish as an appetizer or side dish this past summer. Honestly, we will be happy to have this all year round. That's how much we love it. And since it still feels like a thousand degrees here in Houston, we are going to save the Fall and pumpkin talk till later and indulge in this sweet and savory classic dish.
