Melon, Prosciutto, and Fresh Mozzarella Skewers

READY IN: 20mins
YIELD: 16 Skewers




  • Place first 5 ingredients in a blender or food processor.
  • Blend or pulse until the shallot and basil are finely chopped.
  • Cut melon in half and scoop out the seeds. Using a small melon baller (about the same size as the cheese balls), create as many melon balls as you can.
  • Create your masterpiece! To arrange your skewer, start with a melon ball. Next ruffle a piece of prosciutto and slide that on. Next add a mozzarella ball then another piece of ruffled prosciutto and finally another melon ball. Continue until all skewers have been created. Arrange on your platter.
  • You can make this a couple of hours ahead but you should cover and place in the refrigerator. (Do not put the basil oil in the refrigerator).
  • When ready to serve, drizzle skewers with the basil oil and garnish with a few basil leaves.
