After sorting through my mental catalogue of recipes I remembered reading about prosciutto wrapped melon, and I figured that would be easy enough. I stopped at Sniders, the little market by my apartment. They didn't have all cantaloupe, so I bought a fruit salad and figured that would have to do. I then got 3 slices of prosciutto sliced thin at the meat counter and went on my way.
3 thin slices of prosciutto
melon - cantaloupe and honey dew
Using a melon-baller, scoop of small melon balls and place on a platter
Remove prosciutto from heat and cut into squares/rectangles.
Place prosciutto on top of melon, place toothpick in the center and ta-da! You have a delicious appetizer.
Tips: The salty and sweet combination of this appetizer is great. Make sure that the melon is fresh and ripe or else the flavors don't blend as well.
I served this up with some merlot and Justin and I shared some peace and quiet before dinner. Cheers!
