As part of this promotion, Good Cook also asked its team of Kitchen Experts to make and share an unconventional fresh fruit dish that was not a “typical fruit salad.” What to make? Inspiration struck when I was browsing Mariano’s ad last week and spotted prosciutto-wrapped cantaloupe slices. I love mixing salty and sweet tastes, but I’m not a huge fan of cantaloupe. I am, however, a fan of prosciutto… and watermelon!
Prosciutto-Wrapped Watermelon Slices Inspired by an appetizer in Mariano’s supermarket ad
Fresh thinly-sliced prosciutto
Quarter a watermelon, then slice into rectangles about 3″ in length.
Wrap each watermelon slice with one slice of prosciutto. The prosciutto will naturally want to stick to itself, so you won’t need toothpicks to hold them in place.
Stack on a platter and serve! These were excellent. My boys snapped them up before lunchtime, and I had to tell them to save a few for their father, who is also a big fan of good prosciutto. He took one bite and said “These are a perfect mix of sweet and salty!” They also turned watermelon slices into finger foods that don’t drip!
Cut the rest of the watermelon and store it in your new watermelon bowl. Invite other family members to enjoy!
