Prosciutto, Melon, and Mozzarella on Simply Recipes

Prosciutto, Melon, and Mozzarella


  • 1/4 lb thinly sliced Italian Prosciutto di Parma
  • 1 cantaloupe or honeydew melon, or 1/2 of each
  • A lemon or lime for squeezing
  • 1 8-ounce container of fresh cherry-size mozzarella cheese, each cheese ball cut in half


Cut the melon in half and remove the seeds. Using a melon baller, scoop up the melon into small balls. Place melon balls in a bowl and sprinkle lemon or lime juice all over them. Take a small strip of prosciutto and wrap it around a melon ball. Pierce through with a toothpick and add a piece of mozzarella if desired. Repeat for all melon balls. Arrange on a platter.
