    Nutty and full of flavour, Jamón Ibérico de Bellota ham pairs incredibly well with sweet and juicy melon. This tasty Spanish tapas recipe known as melon con jamón (melon with ham) takes no time to prepare, requires no cooking and it’s an excellent choice for lunch or as a delicious starter for a barbecue.


    1. Use a melon baller to make small balls out all three types of melon and chill the balls in the fridge until you are ready to serve.
    2. Bring the jamón ibérico de bellota to room temperature 30 minutes before serving.
    3. Arrange the melon balls on serving plates or on a large platter, scatter the Jamon Iberico slices, sprinkle some small basil leaves and drizzle with a good grassy extra virgin olive oil.
