The combination of savory and salty cured Italian ham together with a sweet juicy cantaloupe complement each other so well, it's a match made in heaven.

Grilled Vegetables

Grilling vegetables is not about having special equipment. The best vegetables to grill are the ones that are ripe in your garden or fresh at the market.

2 bell peppers ( remove core and seeds, quarter )
1 large red onion ( peel and quarter )
1 medium eggplant ( cut lengthwise in half-inch slices or rounds )
1 medium zucchini ( cut lengthwise in half-inch slices or rounds )
1/2 lb asparagus ( cut off woody ends )
2 medium tomatoes ( cut in half, or a bunch of grape tomatoes, leave whole )
2 large portobello mushrooms ( I like them whole )
1/2 c olive oil ( or more )
Juice from a half lemon or lime
Generous pinch of sea salt and freshly cracked pepper
