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.

How to Make It

Step 1

Cut mango into 1/4- to 1/2-inch slices (about 16). Place 1 mango slice on top of 3 arugula leaves and 1 to 2 basil leaves.

Step 2

Cut each prosciutto slice lengthwise into 4 strips. Wrap center of each mango bundle with 1 prosciutto strip. Arrange on a serving platter, and sprinkle with pepper.

Step 3

Note: To make ahead, prepare recipe as directed. Cover bites with damp paper towels, and chill 30 minutes.

Step 4

Prosciutto-Wrapped Melon Bites: Substitute half of 1 small cantaloupe or honeydew for mango. Proceed with recipe as directed.

Step 5

Proscuitto-Wrapped Pear Bites: Substitute 1 ripe pear, unpeeled, for mango. Cut pear as directed in Step Toss together pear slices and 1/2 cup lemon-lime soft drink to prevent browning; drain. Proceed with recipe as directed.

These were delicious and VERY easy! The hardest part is slicing the mango. I made them the evening before a lunch with a few friends and they kept well in the fridge overnight. We all loved them and there were certainly no leftovers! Picture of the ones I made here: http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10150653930755193&l=6fa4266588
