Prosciutto with Melon and Fig.  Can you get more old-school Italian than this decadent appetizer?

In fact, I believe the proper way to pronounce “prosciutto” in Italian is to leave off the “o” sound at the end with just an ever so slight “t” sound.  It sounds like “pro-shoo…..t“.

Not to mention, it makes a beautiful appetizer.

    I love the idea of serving it with balsamic vinegar! I've had this plenty of times and never tried with the vinegar. Must go and try it!!
