cool summer snack

Here's another quick and lovely summer bite from my current no kitchen kitchen.
Many of you may already know of this combination,
but if you haven't tried it, give it a go.
Simply start with pieces of fresh, ripe cantaloupe.
Nestle a leaf or two of basil on top,
and wrap it up in a slice of prosciutto.
yummy, salty, sweet, summer goodness.
I made big fat slices of this for a cold dinner over the weekend,
and was afraid that S might proclaim, "This is dinner?".
He loved it. I love him. Happy ending.

p.s. These were from a leftover piece that I sliced up for a lunch first course for myself today.


  1. Yum! I've had this before but never with basil - excellent idea!

    Steve's a good egg :)

  2. mmm...yes basil is a must.
    And I happen to know someone with a very large basil plant:)

  3. Sounds wonderful, Christine .. will have to try this soon!
