Prosciutto, Melon, and Mozzarella

A perfect summertime appetizer, prosciutto-wrapped melon is a delicious blend of salty and sweet flavors. Mozzarella balls adds another touch. You may want to serve some with the mozzarella, some without. Or, try wrapping some prosciutto around the mozzarella.

Prosciutto, Melon, and Mozzarella Recipe

Print
  • Prep time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: Makes about 30 pieces

Ingredients

  • 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

Method

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.

    I love the simplicity of this app. One thing I’ve done in the past is a fresh squeeze of lemon over the prosciutto/melon. another variation that is FANTASTIC is to wrap prosciutto around fresh figs or dates.

    This combination is great with a nice Port. I once had something similar in France where they actually used small, individual-size melons filled with port and the prosciutto on the side. Yum.
