Simple but so good

One of our favorite ways to enjoy melons in the summer is to cut them into chunks, wrap the chunks in prosciutto and well there’s nothing left but to grab some bubbly.

OK, that’s just too simple! Here are some tasty ideas that are almost as simple from other blogs: watermelon salsa from Nutritioulicious, mango mint run granita at Man Woman Eat Veg, blueberry and peach salad with thyme and honey at Saffron & Honey, peach and blue cheese bruschetta at TasteFood and watermelon feta salad over at Savoring Every Bite. While you’re over there check out her Dulde de Leche Ice Cream cake, I think I would savor every bit of that.

  2. I love the sweet and salty in this and thanks for the shout-out! πŸ™‚

  3. ChefMom says:

    Now I could eat melons this way for sure! It sounds like the perfect way to spend a warm, summer Friday night!

  4. wishing i had some fresh melon & prosciutto in the fridge right now! you are so right — simple, yet so good.

  5. Lovely! We have to substitute the prosciutto for jamon (which you can never slice quite as thinly) but delicious nonetheless. Am off now to check out some of your other recommendations,

  6. You’re breaking my heart…

  7. Fabulous – I love the flavour of melon and prosciutto and throw in some bubbly and you have a party!

    I read about this combination not long ago, and loved it when I tasted it – and now your picture is making me desperately hungry (at 3am on a sleepless night, very inconvenient!!)

  10. Kelly says:

    I don’t know, I like the simplicity of your melon and prosciutto and the flavours are pretty hard to match – thanks Greg!

  11. nutritioulicious says:

    Thanks for the shoutout!!

  12. I love this idea of mixing fruit with prosciutto, it sounds too delicious to pass up. I may have to sneak this in when I have a girls night

  13. says:

    Love this combo. I can’t wait till it’s melon season up here. Only a few more weeks…!

  14. That’s on of my favorite summertime appetizers and sometimes we drizzle a little balsamic over it. Aloha…I am in Kauai reading your blog.

  15. Why oh why did I check your post before going to bed!
    How can I sleep now after all these mouth watering recipes..

    Melons…any way I can get them…your pictures are making me hungry!!

  17. Kathiza says:

    Oh yes, I love this. Normally I don’t like fruit combined with meat or fish, but I LOVE melons with prosciutto. Oh, heavenly…
    Thanks for stopping by at my blog. In case you didn’t see: I answered to your comment and asked some wine-related questions. Maybe you could answer them for me? Thanks!
    I’ll check out more of your blog. Looks great!

  18. Good Cooks says:

    Hummm looks a fantastic idea, but can I substitute the prosciutto with something else, like turkey deli. I wonder who it taste. Thanks for the idea.
    Lovely blog here.

  19. Caroline says:

    Prosciutto is my weakness. Though I’m not a huge melon fan, this is just too simple and delicious sounding to pass up. Love the colors. Nom nom.

  20. Kas says:

    Ack I really need to learn to stop looking at your blog when I am hungry …

  21. rsmacaalay says:

    Wow I love the simplicity of this dish, great opposing flavors that do perfectly match. You can also add in your list bacon wrapped prunes which I tried recently and it is so good.

  22. ChgoJohn says:

    Such a simple dish but still a great one. It’s usually the first thing to disappear whenever I serve it.

  23. Young Wifey says:

    Beautiful! I like to make these and stick them on skewers! I have a similar watermelon, black bean, feta salad that I looooove! Let me know if you try the other one!

  24. Classic, simple perfection! Thanks for posting and reminding me that I have not made this in too long.

  25. Kathryn says:

    Oh, man! Melons just came in season here in Austin and I have a canary melon reserved at the farmer’s market next weekend. I’m going to grab some prosciutto at the grocery store this week and make skewers like Young Wifey suggested.

  26. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve made these exact appetizers! It’s how I fell in love with prosciutto!

  27. Yuri says:

    This is a classic pairing, love the bite sized portions πŸ™‚

  28. Linda says:

    I love simple!! Plus it looks soo pretty!! I’m having house guests and looking for some quick and delish treats! Btw, Thank you so much for mentioning my posts!

  29. I think I’m in love! It’s supposed to be over 100 with the heat index here this weekend and this is a great way to get out of cooking. Thanks for the idea…and the midnight mouth-watering.

  30. decologue says:
