Melon and Prosciutto Bites
These bites are the perfect balance of salty, sweet, and slightly spicy. Along with a cucumber basil drizzle they make the perfect appetizer for a party. Make a bunch…they’ll go quick!
For this recipe there really are no amounts. It all depends on how many you want to make. But the ingredients are as follows:
- Cantaloupe or melon cut into large cubes
- Prosciutto cut to fit on top of melon cubes
- Fresh basil, diced
- The Olive Tap’s Basil Agrumato Olive Oil
- The Olive Tap’s Cucumber Honeydew White Riserva Balsamic Vinegar
- The Olive Tap’s Sriracha Sea Salt (I like the bit of spice this adds, but feel free to use any sea salt)
Lay a piece of the prosciutto over the melon cube and stick a toothpick through to bottom. Arrange them all on a platter of your choice. Once they are all done combine the Basil Olive Oil, and Cucumber Melon Balsamic in a small bowl and whisk to combine. I made a dozen and used 1 T. of each the oil and vinegar. Drizzle the dressing over prosciutto melon bites, sprinkle with Sriracha Sea Salt, and sprinkle on diced basil. Serve immediately.
