  • 20 leaves basil
  • 1 tbsp olive oil extra virgin
  • pepper
  • 1 Charentais melon cut into 10 wedges
  • 10 slices prosciutto


  • In a bowl, gently toss the first 3 ingredients until the basil is well coated. Place 2 basil leaves down from end to end on a platter.
  • Next lay 1 melon wedge on the basil. Finish by wrapping a slice of prosciutto around the melon and the basil.
  • Repeat for the remaining melon wedges.


I like to drizzle a little balsamic reduction over the top of the wraps.
*Melon can also be substituted with Organic Orange Flesh Honeydew Melon, Organic Cantaloupe, and Tuscan Cantaloupe Melon.
