I have always loved a little something salty with something fruity, so the pairing of prosciutto and melon is one of my favorite appetizers.
Just as it is with most things, it’s fun to switch things up from time to time. Changing one element of this traditional dish, makes it seem like a different dish altogether. Just like tossing a new pillow onto a couch brightens up a room, the added “drizzle” of this minty balsamic glaze, brings new life to this already delicious appetizer. The sweetness of the melon and the saltiness of the prosciutto is Gr8 on its own, but the finishing touch added in the end…even better! Don’t be afraid of this unfamiliar combination! It’s tasty, refreshing and easy, too! With the simple ingredients, preparation and pretty presentation, it’s sure to be a winner.
Here’s a new version of this classic hors d’oeuvre.
Adapted from Gourmet magazine 1993.
In a small bowl combine the vinegar, mint and sugar. Whisk until sugar dissolves.
For extra added color, use a variety of melons, available at your local market.
