Italian Prosciutto and Cantaloupe Appetizer

An Italian favorite appetizer, easy to make and a wonderful party appetizer.

1 cantaloupe - seeded and cut into 12 wedges
12 thin slices prosciutto

Remove the outer skin of the cantaloupe; wrap each piece of cantaloupe with a slice of the Italian ham. Secure with toothpicks..........Serve cold.


  1. ah yes, a big favorite here. have you ever made them with figs..and a bit of goat cheese?

  2. Very nice! Prosciutto (or any smoked ham for that matter) pairs nicely with melon. Cantaloupes are a good price right now. Finding them in the stores for as low as $.75 for a 2-3 lb. melon.

    We posted an article on the SmartShopIt Blog on how to buy and store cantaloupe this week.

  3. I love these!
    Always a tasty dish...

  4. I used to make this all the time... But haven't made it in a while. Thanks for the reminder! :)
