Cool Summer Appetizer {Prosciutto w/cantaloupe/honey dew melon and fresh mozzarella cheese}

Summer is almost here and with summer comes entertaining to include backyard BBQs.  My kids and I went to the library recently to sign up for their summer book club reading.  I picked two books both by Williams-Sonoma.  One was Outdoor Entertaining and the other one was Essentials of Mediterranean Cooking.  I love looking at different cookbooks and trying new recipes.  I am especially drawn to books and magazines that include pictures of the recipe.   When we have guest over, I want to entertain them.  I don’t want to be in the kitchen all day long, which takes away from entertaining.  A cool yet flavorful dish you can whip up in no time is prosciutto with cantaloupe/honey dew melon and fresh mozzarella cheese.  While staying in Italy we were always served family style but these can easily be put on skewers and served individually.  All you need is:
Cantaloupe/Honeydew melon
Mozzarella (the pearl mozzarella balls work great with this recipe if you can find them)
Olive oil
Basil (I love to experiment with different herbs so try some thyme also)

If you have a melon baller start by scooping the cantaloupe into balls, take the prosciutto and randomly place around the cantaloupe balls.  (I am a big believer in you eat with your eyes so presentation is a big thing for me).  Next randomly place the mozzarella balls around the serving tray.  Once you have these ingredients in place sprinkle olive oil and finish up by sprinkling with kosher or sea salt, fresh ground pepper and basil (you can either tear or chiffonade the basil).

This is such a great appetizer that is perfect for summer entertaining and I know your guest will love them too.

 Buon Appetito

Genovese Basil

I know that I have not posted in a while but I have been busy getting all of my seeds planted.  I did not plant all of the seeds at once but I am finally finished planting all of the seeds that I ordered.  Can you believe I even went to Lowe's and got more during the whole planting process?  I have always planted sweet basil and loved the results but before placing my order with Burpee I took alot of time out to read the reviews about each item that I ordered.  After reading the comments for genovese basil, I definitely wanted to try it out since I love pesto.  Some of the comments and reviews stated that it was best basil for Italian pesto and very easy to grow therefore I wanted to plant some just to see if there was a big difference.  Although I have not made any basil this year, take a look at my plant so far:

I only recently planted the basil and it has grown the biggest thus far.  This basil has excellent germination.  In as little as 3-4 days the seedlings were emerging from the soil. 
Whether you are a green thumb or not these seeds are definitely a "must try" and here is an excellent recipe for pesto from an earlier post:

Remember with basil in order to encourage growth pick the leaves quite often but do not allow to flower because they will lose some of their flavor and even become bitter. 
Happy Gardening!
