Prosciutto and Basil Wrapped Rockmelon

This classic combination is always a winner. Serve it cold as an entrée or light snack. My in-laws, in Spain, generally use jamon (Spanish cured leg of ham), which is just as delicious. The addition of a basil leaf to the juicy, salty and sweet combination lifts this little number to new heights with a summery twist.

What you need:

  • 1 small rockmelon

  • A few leaves of fresh basil

  • 8-10 slices of the best quality prosciutto/jamon you can afford

What to do:

  1. Slice the rockmelon in half and then lengthways into crescents. You should be able to divide the melon into 8-10 crescents, depending on its size.

  2. Deseed and deskin each crescent.

  3. Wrap a slice of prosciutto around each crescent and pop a couple of basil leaves within the wrap.

  4. Serve cold.
