Prosciutto-Wrapped Melon

We admit, this is not really a recipe, but prosciutto-wrapped melon chunks are easy to make, really pretty and everyone loves them, so we thought they were an appetizer worth documenting. For presentation, we like to top each piece with a seedless grape and skewer them with a pick.

Prosciutto-wrapped melon chunks are an easy, no-cook appetizer that everyone adores. Top with a grape and skewer with a pick for a great-looking presentation.

  1. Cut each slice of prosciutto lengthwise into 3 strips, then wrap each strip tightly around a piece of melon.
