Melon and Prosciutto Skewers
1 Whole Melon – (cantaloupe works great)
½ lb Prosciutto di Parma
Fresh Mozzarella Bocconcini (bite size balls)
Using a small melon baller (if you don’t have one, the melon can be diced into approximately ½” - 1” cubes). Slice the Mozzarella into halves. In this order, on a skewer, place 1 melon ball, 1 ripped section of Mint leaf (approximately the size of a quarter), approximately 1/5th portion of 1 slice of prosciutto, and 1 half of Mozzarella. Repeat until you have your desired number of skewers. Drizzle with honey and serve.
