While studying art in college for a year in Italy, I discovered the classic Italian antipasto, Prosciutto e Melone (prosciutto and melon). It couldn’t be simpler or tastier on a warm summer evening before dinner! I suggest enjoying it with a Campari aperitif (like Campari and soda) or a glass of chilled Rosé wine. In Italy, the melon slices are cut large, as above, but for parties I like to prepare bite sized cubes of melon wrapped in prosciutto (and a little toothpick to hold each together). Buon Appetito!
