Prosciutto & Melone: a summer snack from Italy

prosciutto wrapped melon bites

The summer melons are ripe, juicy and fragrant. I remember warm summer afternoons at my in-laws’ home in Rome and the taste of salty prosciutto followed by the sweetness of melon. It’s a classic combination in Italy and one I can rely on every summer there.

But what really made me think of it was the big fat “NO” in response to my melon snack suggestion. So, we gave the usual melon bites a bit of zest for a big fat “YES”!
