Prosciutto and Melon Prosciutto and Melon

Author: Canadian Living

Farmer's markets teem with ripe, juicy melons, such as cantaloupe, honeydew and muskmelon. Their sweet flavours pair well with thin curls of prosciutto crudo, an uncooked air-cured ham that has been made in Italy since Roman times. Look for small chunks (usually plain or picante) at Italian butcher stalls and either slice it yourself or have them shave some for you.
