Whether you like them in rustic peel-on slices or peeled and cut into cubes, these super-quick ways to serve melons will keep you eating these water- and flavor-laden fruits all through their harvest.
1. Melons With Prosciutto
The classic Italian combination exists for a reason: the saltiness and fatty smooth texture of prosciutto (or jamon, speck, or other thinly cut cured ham) and the watery sweet melon temper each other perfectly. Serve melon slices draped in ham, or wrap melon cubes with small strips of meat and secure with a toothpick for an easy appetizer.
2. Melons With Salty Cheese
Noticing a theme? The sweetness and juiciness of melons makes them go great with salty, spicy things. Watermelon and feta is a classic combination, but experiment with your favorite melon and un-aged, salted cheese.
