  • 1 cantaloupe
  • 12 slices prosciutto
  • 24 basil leaves
  • 8 oz mozzarella balls ciliegine size
  • 2 tablespoon balsamic glaze


  • Cut the cantaloupe in half and remove the seeds. Use a melon baller or 1 teaspoon measuring spoon to scoop out 24 balls.
  • Thread cantaloupe, half a slice of prosciutto, basil and mozzarella ball on a skewer. Repeat with remaining skewers.
  • Drizzle balsamic glaze over the skewers. Happy nomming!


  • Make the skewers ahead of a large gathering and drizzle with balsamic glaze just before serving.
  • I used 3.5 inch skewers. Toothpicks work as well.
