Sometimes the simplest ideas create the best flavors. What could be better than juicy, sweet citrus fruit wrapped in a strip of basil with salty Serrano ham, all drizzled with a little dressing? We can find Serrano in the local Costco and Whole Foods, but this effortless appetizer would taste super with prosciutto as well.

Cardamom is a resinous, strongly aromatic seed used often in India, Asia and the Netherlands. Full of warm, spicy flavor that tastes great with oranges and cinnamon – with a bonus – it also contains chemicals that might treat intestinal spasms, kill some bacteria, reduce swelling, and help the immune system.
