Grilled Melon and Prosciutto Skewers

Grilled Melon and Prosciutto Skewers

Somethings grilled are weird at first, and this falls under that category. Some foods should stay cold and some foods can be grilled and be very good. I wasn’t sure how I was going to feel about these grilled melon and prosciutto skewers at first. However, what the grill did to the cantaloupe and honeydew was phenomenal. As my roommate put it, it tasted as if I doused the fruit in sugar.



The heat from the grill caramelized the cantaloupe and honeydew. Plus the charcoal/smokey flavor? You may be a little weary of it, but trust me, it’s good. Then you have the prosciutto, which never disappoints.

I’ve also discovered a love for the little melon baller I bought. It is like the absolute cutest way to cut/consume cantaloupe/honeydew/watermelon… how have I gone so long without one? Don’t know.
