Melon-Bites

Melon Bites

Looking for a light and fruity treat, try these Melon Bites with Prosciutto and Lime Drizzle. I made these for Easter Sunday Brunch and they were very tasty. The saltiness of the prosciutto with the sweet of the melon was a perfect pairing. Topped with the juice of a lime and what a pretty dish.

Melon-BitesThe original recipe had the melons on skewers but I decided to just toss them in a bowl and let people take what they like.
