  • 1/2 medium melon cantaloupe, Crenshaw, Chanterais, or your favourite sweet melon
  • 4-6 slices prosciutto or Serrano ham
  • 16 leaves fresh mint


  • Cut melon in half, remove seeds, slice and peel.
  • Slice prosciutto, removing fat if desired, into thin strips.
  • Just before serving, wrap each melon slice with a thin slice of prosciutto and secure with a toothpick and a mint leaf.
  • NOTE: These cannot be made a long time in advance as the melon draws out the salt from the ham and it becomes soggy.
