Sweet & Sour Antipasto
In Italy it is very common to serve slices of melon with ‘prosciutto’. It makes a very tasty dish, generally served as appetizer at dinners or parties.
I had some Serrano ham which I had bought from Mr. Meat a few weeks back and decided to use it in this recipe, giving a special twist to the traditional recipe by adding a sweet balsamic reduction and a few soft balls of my homemade coconut milk ricotta (I will post the recipe VERY soon).
The result was this tasty, beautiful, fresh and healthy dish. Give it a try!
- 1/2 melon
- 100 gr Serrano ham
- 200 gr ricotta cheese (I made my own with coconut milk)
- fresh arugula
- Kalamata olives
- balsamic reduction
- a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil
Remove the internal seeds from the melon and slice it up
Grab some Serrano ham
and lay all that on a plate together with some fresh arugula
Add some scoop of coconut milk ricotta (or cow milk ricotta),
some kalamata olives. Drizzle some balsamic reduction and extra virgin olive oil
and serve or refrigerate until ready to eat.
