When the heat of summer hits my kitchen, the last thing I want to do is turn on the stove.  That’s when I turn to simple no-bake recipes.  One of my favorite summer recipes is a very classical combination –  fresh sweet melon and prosciutto.  The sweet-salty combo is perfect for a light summer appetizer when melon at its best.  Prosciutto wrapped melon is a simple appetizer that goes well with both formal or casual menus.


Simply buy some prosciutto de parma at the deli counter (ask for it sliced paper-thin), and wrap it around pieces of melon that have been seeded and cut from the rind.  Serve with a nice glass of white wine and after a few bites (and sips) you’ll forget all about the heat.
