Prosciutto and Melon

Having some people over for drinks and don't want to slave in the kitchen or break your budget on grocery costs? Don't fret! This fast and simple hors d'oeuvre is exactly what you're looking for! There are only three ingredients, making it wallet friendly; it is so easy to prepare, you'll feel like you're cheating; and it makes for a beautiful presentation with all of its bright colours. Prosciutto and melon is such a delicious flavour combination. Salty prosciutto hugs sweet and juicy cantaloupe slices, and is tied together with a delicate chive. Now all you need is a nice glass of wine and your night is set!

Ingredients:
prosciutto slices (thinner works better)
cantaloupe, seeded and sliced
long chives

Directions:
1. Wrap prosciutto slices around cantaloupe slices. Tie each piece together with a chive.

2. Marvel at how simple it was to create such a fabulous dish!

This looks fantastic! I've heard of this combination but never actually tried it. And I've never heard of tying the prosciutto on with chives - such a clever idea.
