Melon & Prosciutto Skewers over Greens Mix
- In a large bowl, mix the greens with some olive oil until moist.
- On each skewer place one piece of melon, one slice of prosciutto and the chopped greens.
Serving food on skewers never seems to go out of style, whether for a meal or appetizer, and that concept certainly applies to this recipe. After all, skewers allow for a great combination of flavors as well as easy preparation. With this appetizer, simply select your melon (watermelon or cantaloupe both work wonderfully!), and slice it into square, bite-size pieces. You could even use an ice cream scoop to create melon balls instead if you find that easier! As for the fresh greens, basil leaves are a popular choice. These skewers are delicious just as the recipe is written, and they can also be easily customized by adding other ingredients such as mozzarella balls or avocado pieces.
