This Skewer Recipe is Sweet, Salty and Highly Addictive

These sweet and salty skewers with prosciutto, melon and mozzarella pearls are easy bites for any summer soirée! Top with fresh basil, and drizzle with balsamic reduction for a tasty tang!

These skewers could not be any easier to make! Salty prosciutto, and mozzarella pearls from the deli area of your local grocery, with fresh melon (we’re using cantaloupe for today’s recipe), pierced on toothpicks, that most likely are already on hand from the pantry.

For pretty presentation, make sure to use a melon baller to form perfect rounds of melon to mix into these tasty (and highly addictive!) skewers.
