That easy and delicious holiday appetizer you are looking for!


  • 1 ripe cantaloupe
  • 2 packages of prosciutto
  • approximately 2 cups fresh basil leaves
  • toothpicks


  1. Cut cantaloupe into small squares.
  2. Take a piece of prosciutto and cut it in half lengthwise and across so it is in quarters.
  3. Take a piece of cantaloupe and wrap it in prosciutto.
  4. Place a folded basil leaf on top and then push toothpick in to hold all together.
  5. Note: how many individual appetizers this makes is entirely dependent upon how big your melon squares are. If you cut the melon too big, you will need a whole half of a prosciutto slice to fully wrap the square. Plan accordingly.
