  Summer skewers with Speck Alto Adige PGI, apple and courgette



For 8 skewers

2 courgettes
Fine salt
1 golden delicious apple
A few leaves of fresh basil
4 dessert spoons of extra-virgin olive oil
16 thinly-cut slices of Speck Alto Adige PGI
16 mini mozzarella balls

 

Preparation

Cut the courgettes lengthwise into 16 slices approx. 3 mm thick. Preheat grill or griddle pan and grill courgettes on both sides for a few minutes, adding a pinch of salt to season.

Core the apple, chop into 16 wedges and grill for a few seconds on both sides (the apple will cook much more quickly than the courgette).

Put oil and basil leaves into a tall container and mix with a hand blender.
Thread a rolled-up slice of Speck Alto Adige PGI, a slice of grilled apple, a mozzarella ball and a rolled-up slice of courgette onto the skewers and repeat. Arrange skewers on a serving dish and season with a drizzle of basil oil.
