Salami Wrapped Melon With Candied Fennel, Anise, Coriander and Pink Peppercorns

This easy and refreshing starter is a playful take on the favorite Italian appetizer, Prosciutto e Melone.  Featuring Finocchiona Salami and Salumi Salami from our friends at Salumi Cured Meats, we finish it all off with colorful, crunchy and exquisite candied anise, fennel, Indian coriander and pink peppercorns.  The salty savoriness of the salami is a perfect compliment to the super sweet melon.

You’ll want a completely ripe melon for this dish, so look for melon skins that are firm and free of bruising or soft spots.  The stem end should not be green, and the end of the melon opposite of the stem should have a nice strong pleasant aroma.

A great offering for the upcoming Labor Day BBQ’s and picnics.  Enjoy!
