Sandia con Jamon
Watermelon Wrapped in Jamon Serrano

Makes 6 tapa servings

 

A classic melon-and-ham flavor combination with a thick Spanish accent. When the weather is hot, this makes a great snack or starter course.

6 small triangles of watermelon
6 thin slices of jamon serrano,
     (enough to wrap around each melon piece)
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup crumbled aged goat cheese, feta cheese, or queso fresco
2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint
1 teaspoon crushed red chile flakes

Wrap each piece of melon with a piece of jamon serrano. Place each wrapped melon piece on a chilled plate. Drizzle each melon piece with olive oil and sprinkle with cheese, chopped mint, and chile flakes.
