Do you ever get creative with food?

I love to mix it up!

I remember my father in law loved to sprinkle salt on his watermelon. I thought this was unusual. But he had the right idea.

Salty and sweet go perfectly together and so does this appetizer that celebrates the sweetness of summer.

Juicy, ripe red watermelon is the star of this recipe.

Watermelon is finally available at the grocery store and I can't resist the sweet fruit.

We eat it all summer long in my house.

The boys love it plain but I also enjoy it in my favorite cocktails, fruit salads and it's a great topper for grilled fish.

It also makes for a simple yet bold appetizer.

Chop up sweet watermelon into bite-sized chunks, pair it with the meaty flavor of prosciutto and the salty, firm bite of Pecorino Romano cheese.

Sprinkled with black pepper and a drizzle of olive oil, these make the perfect morsels for any party. 

The salty and the sweet mix together for an explosive reaction that your taste buds will thank you for. 

Be the hit at the next party and serve these watermelon prosciutto bites!
