Easter weekend is upon us! How are you enjoying the holiday weekend? With family? With friends? Are you hosting, or are you a lucky guest? This year I am spending time with my best friend's family, and I am really looking forward to it. While I love hosting, it is also a lot of pressure! If you're looking for a last minute easy dish to serve or bring to your holiday gathering, check out these three melon and prosciutto skewers.
Prosciutto and cantaloupe is classic. It's the perfect relationship of salty ham and sweet melon. How can you go wrong? The answer is you can't. By adding two other kinds of melon, creamy mozzarella, and fresh basil, suddenly a classic takes on a whole new identity. The fresh basil offers a very bright herb flavor, which compliments the melon flavors so well.
Perhaps the best thing about these melon and prosciutto skewers is that they are easy to make and don't require much effort. Plus, they are SO cute and colorful! I really love anything I can serve on a grab-and-go stick, especially when feeding a crowd. They usually find their way onto my brunch table, but they are just as great alongside your favorite BBQ dishes.
I will warn you, they don't keep well for more than 1 day, so I suggest eating the same day you assemble. The moisture in the melon and mozzarella ends up making the prosciutto soggy and slimy if you store them.
Happy Easter friends!Print
