Incredibly common in Italy during the summertime, this prosciutto melon appetizer is simply that. Tender, sweet cantaloupe or sugar melon wrapped with salty, paper-thin prosciutto. Serve to your guests at a summer cookout when it’s too hot to cook!
This is the easiest recipe i have EVER POSTED. It’s two ingredients and is simply just assembling the prosciutto and melon into these lovely little wrapped, two-bite morsels.
The quality of ingredients, therefore, matters a lot here. I got nice prosciutto from a deli in the West Village called Murray’s and little sugar melons from the Farmer’s Market that are fragrant and sweet.
- 2 small sugar melons or 1 cantaloupe, chopped
- 1/4 lb of nice prosciutto
- cut off the melon’s skins and chop into eigths
- wrap the melon with proscuitto
- that’s it
