Prosciutto and Melon
This dish proves that delicious doesn't have to be complicated. It's a classic that we have encountered on at least three continents.
1 ripe cantaloupe (musk melon)
1/4 pound (125 g) Prosciutto ham, sliced paper thin (2-4 slices per person)
1 lemon, cut in wedges
Freshly ground black pepper
Cut the melon into 8 wedges, discarding the seeds. Carefully slice the rind off the melon, placing the melon back on the rind for presentation. Drape 2 to 4 slices of Prosciutto over the melon. Garnish with lemon wedges and serve with freshly ground black pepper. Serves 4
