Prosciutto Wrapped Melon with Parmesan Shavings

Author Notes: OK, so no real recipe here. My local grocer just ran an ad stating that if you bought the 3 ounce package of prosciutto they would give you a ripe, juicy cantaloupe for free. I am SO into this-gimme now! The cashier-who is about my age-has no idea what is going on and asks me why the prosciutto is paired with cantaloupe. My friend Rick G and his beautiful bride Sharon introduced me to this luxury at their wedding reception back in the day. I've never forgotten. Vicki Amsinger

Serves: 6-8

  • 3 ounces wafer thin prosciutto
