Prosciutto Wrapped Melon

This cantaloupe wrapped in prosciutto is one of the easiest & lightest recipes for a hot summer day.  Prosciutto is delicate and can be tricky – sometimes it’s hard to wrap around the melon and you kinda just gotta stick it on there.  Prosciutto is a salt cured & thinly sliced ham that does not need to be cooked.  Refreshing & delicious….

We just traveled to Italy and had this as an appetizer many nights. We did it for a dinner party just the other night back home in Boulder. Great website!
