Sweet & Savory Summer Melon Skewers
"Hello, summer! Look at those colors pop! I love the variety I have with my summer melon skewers. These are my favorite combo, but based on guests preferences I can mix and match how I like and personalize, which is a guest's dream- being catered to. I skewer my prosciutto in a way that allows guests to enjoy it with every bite, which is always praised. Lately, I've been inspired by the "tajin on mango" craze, and it is tasty. So, my 2017 addition is a touch of cayenne pepper to offer a wonderful surprise bite. Also, if I've run out of white balsamic or it becomes hard to find, it can be swapped for champagne vinegar. Every summer table needs this, and I hope everyone at Recipe Lion enjoys these refreshing sweet and savory appetizers."
