Cantaloupe Spears wrapped in Prosciutto

A bright, fresh addition to any afternoon party.

Cantaloupe Spears Wrapped in Prosciutto

1 cantaloupe, seeds and seed flesh removed, peeled, cut into spears
8 oz. prosciutto, slices cut in half lengthwise
balsamic vinegar
olive oil
kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Gently wrap cantaloupe spears in prosciutto; place onto a serving platter then drizzle spears with balsamic vinegar and olive oil; season to taste with salt and pepper. This appetizer is best served at room temperature.

Kitchen Tip: How do you know if you have a good balsamic vinegar? Simply taste it! If it’s sweet and pleasant to sip, you’ve got a good one. If you take a sip and the flavor is sour and unpleasant, trade up!
