Mozzarella & prosciutto nibbles on sticks

Fresh, fuss free and delicious... in other words summer food!

All over Europe we have been having an incredible summer this year, even the UK is basking in the heat. This translates into more aperitivi with olives and nibbles and fresh and healthy foods.

I never bought as much watermelon as this year. I have just come back from Italy and with temperatures of 38C over there it was perhaps a little too hot for me but hey, I am not complaining, I love summer, everything is fresh and vibrant and the mood is great.

I had many ice creams.. quite a few "coppe di gelato": a few scoops of ice cream in a glass with whipped cream and a nice topping.. this is just so Italian and so so good. Have you ever had one?

Here you have these nibbles you can prepare very quickly: just get a few little mozzarella balls (bocconcini), tomatoes, prosciutto and melon if you like. You could also use olives and mushrooms preserved in oil too. I used the white-green melon variety but I suggest you could use the classic orange one as it looks prettier and it makes a better presentation.

Happy summertime everyone! Cheers!

Aperitivo time

  • Prep Time : 10 minutes
  • Yield : 6

Instructions

Slice the mozzarella balls in half. Slice the tomatoes and the melon (if using).

Pierce one half of the mozzarella, the tomatoes, the melon, the prosciutto and the basil into the skewers alternating the colours and finish off with the second half of the mozzarella.

Enjoy with a nice glass of wine!

    It’s been warm up this way too, but not as hot as Italy. But plenty hot for us in Scandinavia. I’ve made similar nibblies, but never with watermelon. What a great idea.

      The whole of Europe is hotter than usual. Let’s make the most of it!

    I can totally make these nibbles as the main…just have to double the portion 🙂 They look seriously yummy and easy to make too.
    Have a wonderful weekend, Alida!

      With all the aperitivi we have been having I need more ideas for nibbles. I wouldn’t even bother with dinner at summertime, just lots of nibbles instead!

    Where would we be without a lovely plate of antipasti – this is an unusual and fun way of presenting these ingredients. So glad you’ve also travelled to il bel paese – who cares if it’s hot when there’s so much to enjoy!! 🙂
