Somethings should not be tampered with, and I've come to the conclusion that prosciutto and melon is one of those things. That's not to say I haven't tried: melon ice cream, powdered prosciutto, wrapping the prosciutto around little mouth size bites of melon, or wondering if a mint chiffonade would spark up the flavors, but in my heart I know none of this is better than a cut-able hunk of melon with some just sliced pieces of prosciutto.
So, I have to curb my temptation to fix what isn't broken and just not mess with the perfect flavor combination. (…but that mint idea is just calling me….)
Oh, and just between friends, ketchup is NOT an acceptable condiment on prosciutto and melon. We actually saw American tourists in Rome drown their plate of p and m in ketchup. A very stoic waiter stood nearby and I swear I saw a tear roll down his cheek.
Oh, you’ve come back to reason!
