Cold cuts and smoothies? An unusual pairing, yet healthy and balanced! As in the case of dishes based on fruits and cold cuts, also in the combination of cold cuts smoothies the rule applies that a “fatter” cold cut is accompanied by a more sour and acidic smoothie ingredient, while a salty cold cut is matched to a smoothie ingredient richer in water.

A good chopping board of mortadella, salami, and cooked ham, for example, is perfect if accompanied by a good smoothie made of apples and peaches, or exotic fruits, citrus, and pineapple, or pears and kiwi. While cold cuts such as prosciutto and speck, often the stars of tasty cold dishes, can be paired with apple, apricot, watermelon, fig, melon, berries, and strawberry smoothies. In this last case, fruits and cold cuts counterbalance each other.
