My version of Prosciutto Wrapped Cantaloupe

Prosciutto and melon go together like peas and carrots. The combination of sweet and salty can't be beat! Here is a fun summer recipe. Enjoy outside with a glass of Prosecco!

24 crostini - I buy them made at either Whole Foods or Fresh Market

Extra-virgin olive oil
¹ripe Cantaloupe; diced
¹red onion; minced
2 tablespoons champagne vinegar
2 tablespoons flat leaf parsley; chopped
¹tablespoon fresh mint; chopped
12 slices prosciutto; sliced in 1/2 crosswise
Salt & pepper to taste

Marinate the onions in the vinegar for 5-10 minutes. Add the diced melon, parsley, mint, salt & pepper. Stir to combine.

Wrap each crostini with a piece of prosciutto. Put about a tablespoon of the cantaloupe mixture on top of each piece. Drizzle with olive oil. Enjoy :)
