We don’t know what to say here. We all feel pretty helpless. The people at UNICEF seem to know how to help the kids in Ukraine, Gaza & Armenia (amongst, sadly, many other countries).

Prosciutto e Melone

Prosciutto and Melon Appetizer from Italy
© www.themediterraneandish.com
Prosciutto e melone is a classic Italian dish that has been enjoyed over the summer months for centuries. Consisting of thin slices of prosciutto and juicy pieces of sweet cantaloupe melon, this refreshing and delicious antipasto is perfect for any party.

We love dishes like this: it can be made in advance, it looks great on the table, and it tastes good too! We like to serve ours in smaller bites with sticks so it’s easier to eat in front of the TV.

Traditionally, the dish is made with high-quality, thinly sliced prosciutto di Parma or San Daniele, and ripe, juicy cantaloupe melon. 


A simple recipe for classic cantaloupe wedges and prosciutto, topped with honey and/or a balsamic glaze. 


If you’re looking for something more substantial to serve at your party, this salad version adds some mozzarella balls and tender greens, topped with a balsamic vinaigrette.
