This has got to be one of the easiest appetizers to prepare. Wrapping paper thin prosciutto slices around wedges of juicy cantaloupe.
I picked up an enormous cantaloupe a few days ago and have been waiting patiently for it to fully ripen so I could prepare this elegant and delicious Italian dish.
1 fully ripe cantaloupe
12 very thin slices prosciutto
Wash the cantaloupe, then cut it in half lengthwise. Scoup out the seeds.
Slice each half into 6 wedges. Carefully slice off the rind (keeping it in one piece) from each wedge. Wrap a slice of prosciutto around each piece of cantaloupe, then place that back onto the rind.
The rind step isn't necessary, but I think it looks nice. :P
