Plum and Prosciutto Skewers

These Plum and Prosciutto Skewers are a wingwoman of an appetizer — no, it won’t help you get a guy’s number but it will make you look amazing at any and all times.

It’s no fuss to make but looks like you put a lot of effort into it — you know, like when you wake up with perfect bed head that appears like you spent two hours getting gussied up in the salon? That kind of looking good.

As we head into the holiday weekend, I wanted to give you a super simple appetizer that was a no brainer — so you could focus on getting in the last of summer before it passes us by. So, don’t think twice and serve these Plum and Prosciutto Skewers — especially since they gets along so well with others — they would pair as seamlessly with this updated Antipasti platter as with this Charred Eggplant and Pepper Spread or these Sweet-Spicy Harissa Almonds or even these blistered Padron Peppers.

Making these Plum and Prosciutto Skewers is so simple that you’ll never have to look at the recipe again once you’ve made them once. All it requires is seriously good ingredients  so head on over the farmer’s market, get the best plums you can find (though pluots, nectarines, or peaches would do too), and pull out your absolutely favorite chevre (aka fresh goat cheese —  the California girl in me is partial to Laura Chenel).

Then it’s just a little scoop, drizzle, wrap, and skewer of the cheese, honey, prosciutto and herbs, respectively, and, voila, you’ve got an appetizer. An appetizer that may seem a bit too girly or simplistic at first glance but, just like a good wingwoman, it wins people over every time.
