These melon skewers are the perfect appetizer for Labor Day!
With a medium-size melon baller, scoop out round balls of the melon. You should
have 32 all together. Set aside.
Mix the olive oil, salt, and pepper in a medium mixing bowl. With the goat
cheese, form into 1 inch round balls. They can be placed into the olive oil mixture
and thoroughly coated.
When preparing the prosciutto, place a slice on a cutting board. Cut down the
center, and then roll up so it will fit on the skewer.
Assemble the skewers. Layer the cantaloupe, prosciutto, basil leaves folded in
half, goat cheese balls, and the second piece of cantaloupe until you have 16
Place on a serving platter. Drizzle the balsamic over the skewers 3 to 4 times.
Garnish with more basil.
