Prevent your screen from going dark
In a small bowl combine the vinegar, mint and sugar. Whisk until sugar dissolves.
Allow mixture to rest for 30 minutes and thicken a bit.
Press the solids through a fine sieve, set over a small bowl. Discard solids.
Carefully slide the blade of a sharp knife between the melon and the rind, lengthwise, keeping fruit on top of slice, but don't separate.
Without cutting through the rind, cut down into the melon, creating individual cubes
Keeping the cubes on the full rind, place a piece of prosciutto in between each melon cube.
Arrange cubed wedges on a serving platter and drizzle each wedge with some of the reserved minty mixture.
Garnish the plates with the chopped chives.
It's sure to be a crowd pleaser… Enjoy!
For extra added color, use a variety of melons, available at your local market.
