Melon, Mozzarella, and Prosciutto Skewers

Prep time 20 mins
Yield

Makes 20 skewers (serving size: 1 skewer)

Put out half of the skewers, and keep the remaining chilled until ready to serve. Everyone loves a good melon salad, so we took that idea and "skewer-ed" it. Salty cured ham meets creamy, fresh melon for the ultimate savory/sweet combination. With the addition of smooth mozzarella cheese, these skewers are texturally satisfying and not shy on flavor. Your guests will absolutley the easiness and accessibility of these skewers, and you'd be surprised at how impressed they'll be.

Ingredients

  • 20 (1-inch) cantaloupe or honeydew cubes (about 2 1/2 cups)
  • 20 thin slices prosciutto (about 1/2 lb.)
  • 20 fresh small mozzarella cheese balls (about 1 [8-oz.] tub)
  • 20 (4-inch) wooden skewers
  • Freshly cracked pepper
