  • 1/2 Cantaloupe sliced into 12 pieces, rind removed
  • 12 Prosciutto slices paper thin


  • Wrap each piece of cantaloupe with a slice of prosciutto.
  • Serve alone as an appetizer or with berries, other meats and veggies as part of a charcuterie platter.


  • Make sure to slice it paper thin. If it’s cut too thick then it will be tough.
  • Use ripe, in-season cantaloupe. This appetizer is all about the contract of salty and sweet so you really need the cantaloupe to be super ripe.
