Juicy cantaloupe melon slices with a layer of prosciutto di parma on top is truly sweet and delicious. A refreshing appetizer you can make in minutes and serve at anytime.
It’s so pretty and festive, we love to serve melon with prosciutto as an appetizer on Easter Sunday.
When you combine the sweetness of cantaloupe melon with some saltiness of an Italian cured meat, such as prosciutto, it gives this dish its sensational flavors, as well as its beautiful elegance of pale-orange, pink-purple Spring-like colors.
Cantaloupe is always refreshing no matter how you serve it. It’s low calorie and loaded with vitamins and minerals, and it is a healthy way to start any meal. We love this dish at gatherings, because the ease of preparation makes it perfect for entertaining! Just serve it chilled and let everyone help themselves.
