An Italian favorite appetizer, easy to make and a wonderful party appetizer.

Very nice! Prosciutto (or any smoked ham for that matter) pairs nicely with melon. Cantaloupes are a good price right now. Finding them in the stores for as low as $.75 for a 2-3 lb. melon.

We posted an article on the SmartShopIt Blog on how to buy and store cantaloupe this week.
