With warmer weather now in full swing, I was thrilled when I recently spotted the first organic melons of the season back in the market. Time to share my beautiful little appetizer recipe for Prosciutto Wrapped Melon Bites. This mouthwatering combination of fresh, sweet melon wrapped in salty, Italian ham is always a hit! You can create a gorgeous platter by using contrasting jeweled party pics to hold each delectable package in place. In addition, I love using a combination of classic white porcelain, clear glass and/or shiny silver bowls as serveware for parties. The look is clean, allowing the gorgeous colors of the food to pop rather than being muddled amongst too many other colors.
Oh... and don't forget to serve Prosciutto Wrapped Melon Bites with these delicious Limoncello Cocktails ~ they're the perfect compliment!
