Prep time 20 mins
Yield Makes 8 appetizer servings (serving size: 2 bites)
Ask for paper-thin slices of meat at the deli counter. To ease prep, look for a package of presliced mango in the produce section. We do not recommend jarred mango slices—they're too soft.

  • 1 ripe mango, peeled
  • 1 1/2 cups loosely packed arugula
  • 1 (1-oz.) package fresh basil
  • 4 very thin prosciutto or country ham slices
