Jo-Anne van den Berg-Ohms20 bite-size watermelon pieces
20 thin wedges of goat cheese
10 pieces of sliced Black Forest ham

When friends surprised us with drop-by visit one scorching late summer afternoon, I whipped up these bites to have with drinks on our terrace. Inspired by Shelburne Farms's Watermelon, Tomato and Feta Salad, I did my own version of classic cantelope wrapped in prosciutto. It worked.
Savory Watermelon Bites
Cut the watermelon into bite-size pieces. Top each piece of watermelon with a layer of goat cheese. Cut the Black Forest Ham slices (outer strings removed) in half. Roll each cheese covered-watermelon piece in the ham and secure with a tooth pick. Serve chilled. It is refreshing, sweet, a bit salty from the ham and creamy with a bit of a tang from the goat cheese.
