19 Sep Watermelon Bites with Prosciutto, Olives and Basil
Posted at 23:32h in Appetizers & Tapas
This is not an intuitive flavor pairing, but let me tell you.. it’s FABULOUS! Salty, savory, sweet, umami! Such an awesome little summer bite!
1/10th of a watermelon, cut into 1″x1″ cubes
12 thin slices of prosciutto
24 fresh basil leaves
24 best quality black olives
pinch of red chili flakes
- Start by cutting the ham in half lengthwise.
- Wrap each watermelon cube in a piece of prosciutto and place on a platter.
- Top each one with a basil leaf, black olive, and a sprinkle of chili.
- Drizzle with a small amount olive oil and serve.
You can spear each bite with a toothpick if you’d like.
