Five Prosciutto Wrapped Apps

If you’re looking for new ways to enjoy all of the produce available this season, we’re here to help along with a very versatile ingredient: prosciutto. This dry-cured ham is usually served uncooked and sliced into paper thin pieces. Its delicate, slightly salty taste provides a great contrast to sweet summer fruit and accentuates the flavor of fresh veggies.


Keep reading for five of our favorite fruits and vegetables to combine with prosciutto.

1. Cantaloupe: Pair slices of juicy, ripe cantaloupe melon with thin slices of prosciutto. Or, cube the melon, wrap with prosciutto and skewer with a toothpick.

2. Figs: This gorgeous combo is delicious on its own or with a sprinkle of blue cheese or Parmigiano-Reggiano. Enjoy at room temp, or try baking prosciutto-wrapped fig halves in the oven for just a few minutes.

3. Asparagus: The buttery texture of the meat complements crunchy roasted or grilled vegetables, especially asparagus.

4. Dates: Stuff a dried date with goat cheese and wrap with the ham for a sweet and savory appetizer.

5. White Nectarine: This fresh pick provided by Family Tree Farms combines their sweet nectarines with thin prosciutto and creamy Gorgonzola cheese. Click here for the recipe.
