Chef Chuck's Prosciutto and Melon

Prosciutto e Melone

A refreshing summer snack, proscuitto and melon, is light, and so enjoyable. The mild saltiness of the proscuitto blends well with the sweetness of the melon. Served with fresh mint is a nice compliment.

Proscuitto and Melon

1 ripe melon, honeydew or cantaloupe
1/4 pound thinly slice proscuitto

Select a ripe melon and cut in half, remove seeds and slice 1 inch slices. Square off chunks and wrap with a 1/3 of a slice of proscuitto. Continue wrapping till all melon is ready for serving!
