Prosciutto Wrapped Melon

If you've been following SMAK for a while you know that I enjoy trying new exotic foods and recipes. Whether it's a cold fish cake from Sweden or a ramen from Japan, I like trying everything once. I've found that I really don't mind spending hours in the kitchen preparing a meal or dish for people. I enjoy the process and time put into something that I can share with friends and family. That being said, there are absolutely times when you don't have hours on end to prepare a dish or appetizer to bring with. So today I bring you perhaps the easiest recipes that I have posted thus far on SMAK. cantaloupe

This is the quintessential summer appetizer. As you're reading this, take note, you don't have much time left to jump on this bandwagon as summer is practically over. So run to the grocery store, grab the last of the ripe cantaloupe (you can also use honeydew melon) and pick up some prosciutto as well.

The sweetness of the cantaloupe paired with the delectable saltiness of the prosciutto is enough to leave your taste buds coming back for more. The Italian classic is a great light taste that won't spoil your appetite before dinner.

I hope you all had a wonderful summer and are ready for some fantastic fall recipes!
