  • 4 Tablespoons white balsamic vinegar
  • 2 ½ Tablespoons minced fresh mint leaves
  • 3 ½ Tablespoons sugar
  • 1 medium cantaloupe, seeded and cut into wedges
  • 4 - 6 thin slices prosciutto, cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 1 - 2 Tablespoons chopped chives


  • 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!
