Are you short on time and looking for an easy and fast Spanish cold summer tapas?

Melon con Jamon Serrano, in English Melon with Serrano Ham, might be just exactly what you are looking for.

The salty flavor of the Spanish Serrano Ham is a great contrast to the sweet and juicy honeydew melon.

This tapas dish does not require any cooking and you can prepare it in less then ten minutes.

Buying the ingredients will indeed take way more time than actually preparing the tapas food.

How to prepare Melon con Jamon Serrano?

You first need to cut the honeydew melon in small cubes.

Afterwards, cut the serrano ham slices in half and wrap one piece around every melon cube. Use toothpicks to hold the ham pieces in place.

Tip # 1: I recommend you to put the plate with your melon and ham cubes for around 20 minutes in the fridge before serving.

Tip #2: Serve the melon cubes immediately (or after 20 minutes in the fridge) because otherwise, the melon can waterlog the ham.
