Parma Ham and Melon Balls

Skewers with slices of Parma ham between balls of honeydew and Japanese melonHere’s a nice tapa dish that’s very quick and easy to prepare. There’s no cooking involved either, good for the no-cook recipe fans. I love cooking!


  • a melon
  • a packet of Parma ham
  • skewers

(I was lucky enough to have both a sweet orange honeydew and the even sweeter green-coloured Japanese melon. The contrast in colour was nice but not essential.)


Use a melon baller to make melon balls. (If you don’t have a melon baller then just make melon cubes. It tastes so nice no one will care what shape the melon pieces are.)

Thread the melon pieces and Parma ham onto a skewer.

That’s it! Now, how long did that take?

Here’s a book where you can find more ideas of things to do with salami, Parma ham and other charcuterie products:
