If you asked me to wrap up all my favorite flavors – sweet, salty, creamy, tangy – on a cocktail skewer, I’d pile it with fresh melon, paper-thin proscuitto and soft mozzarella! There’s just no appetizer as easy, elegant and essentially “summer” tasting as the combination of all three. With a drizzle of balsamic reduction, each bite is a little bit of bliss!

I may have been a naughty preggo with the proscuitto indulgence, but hey. This baby’s gotta learn to love Italian! Capiche?

Once the weather warms, the color in my kitchen is instantly amped up by a bit more green, white and red, after all! Handfuls of plump basil and juicy, garden-fresh tomatoes are always in stock. Red bell peppers and hot jalapeños hang out in a basket on my counter, inspiring me to cook something delicious and zesty! And of course, fresh mozzarella joins the mix and adds pure white creaminess to all the vibrant color. We can’t get enough of the stuff – from caprese salads to pizzas and sandwiches, it adds amazing melt-in-your-mouth richness to our savory favorites.

It’s simple skewers like these that make me love mozzarella best, though… and make me want to put on a spring dinner for friends, al fresco style!

For warm weather entertaining, you’ll love these salty, creamy proscuitto bites with mozzarella and cubed cantaloupe! Feel free to substitute thinly sliced ham for the proscuitto, since the good stuff can be pricey (but worth every penny). You’ll get lots of bang for your buck out of just 1/4 pound! Not much is needed for this recipe.

Enjoy your spring weekend, foodie friends. I have lots more deliciousness I can’t wait to share with you next week!
