excellent example of that.

And if it’s an elegant dinner party appetizer you need, we suggest Croque Monsier with Caviar, French Style Crepes,
or Greek marinated vegetables.
- 12 Tin slices of Prosciutto, fat trimmed off
- 1 large papaya - peel, seeded, and cubed (24 cubes)
- 1 1/2 tablespoons of fresh lime juice
- 1 teaspoon of tequila
- 1 teaspoon of grated lime zest
Cut each piece of Prosciutto lengthwise and wrap the pieces of papaya (or other melon substitute) with the Prosciutto.
Arrange the wrapped papaya on a platter. In a small bowl, combine the tequila and lime juice. Sprinkle over the
melon and garnish with lime zest.
This is a very refreshing dish that’s perfect as a spring picnic idea and elegant enough for holiday parties. For other refreshing
party appetizers, visit our easy picnic recipes, where you’ll find tons of dishes that are perfect for summer!
