I wanted to share these before the 4th of July weekend festivities, for those of you who are looking for last-minute, quick and easy ideas on what to bring to your 4th of July party or BBQ. These hors d’oeuvres are fun, easy and aesthetically pleasing for any summer occasion and you don’t need many ingredients.

Ingredients:
Cantaloupe (1 cantaloupe makes 12 skewers so buy 2 if you want 24)
1/4-1/3 lb prosciutto ( I bought 1/3 lb and had enough for 24 skewers)
Cherry tomatoes
fresh mozzarella
basil
balsamic vinegar (for caprese)
olive oil (for caprese)

Last-Minute Summer Appetizers

  • Two quick and easy fun summer appetizers.

  • What you will need.

  • Prosciutto and Melon Skewers:  An Italian summer favorite turned into an delicious appetizer.

  • Rinse and dry melon. Scoop out the center and press melon baller all the way into the flesh. Twist and lift out. Don’t worry if they aren’t perfect. You will get the hang of it. (It you don’t have a melon baller you can cut the melon into square pieces).

  • Arrange your items on skewer in any order you choose. If you don’t want the basil or cheese, you can just add the prosciutto and melon. It’s up to you. My skewers were 4 inches long. You could use longer ones, so as to have a longer handle.

  • Caprese Skewers: These are so easy to make and everyone loves them.

  • Cut your cherry tomatoes in half and cut mozzarella into pieces. Rinse and pat dry the basil. Arrange everything on a toothpick.

  • Drizzle with olive oil and balsamic vinegar before serving, and voila! Ready set go.
