Minted Prosciutto and Melon

Minted Prosciutto and Melon

Prep: 10 minutes; other: 30 minutes

A quick soak in sweet wine, honey, and mint is all the melon needs--any longer and it begins to water out and dilute the flavors.

  • Yield: 6 servings (serving size: 4 pieces cantaloupe and 4 teaspoons marinade)


  • 1/2 cup sweet Italian sparkling white wine (such as spumante) or sparkling white grape juice
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh mint
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 24 none (1 1/2-inch) cubes ripe cantaloupe
  • 6 none very thin slices prosciutto (about 3 ounces), cut lengthwise into 4 strips


1. Combine first 4 ingredients in a large bowl, tossing gently to coat. Cover and chill 30 minutes.

2. Remove cantaloupe, reserving marinade. Wrap cantaloupe pieces with prosciutto; secure each with a wooden pick. Serve with marinade for dipping.
