Prosciutto Wrapped Melon with Parmesan Shavings

July 27, 2014

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 Volpi® 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 friends had this appetizer at their wedding reception back in the day and I've never forgotten it. Vicki Amsinger

Directions

  1. Peel and seed the cantaloupe. Slice the fruit into long strips. Wrap each slice with a piece of prosciutto. Toss on some shaved parmesan cheese and maybe a few torn mint sprigs. Yup, that’s it. So simple, so beautiful, so decadent.
