Even though I knew that Tom and C won’t eat asparagus and I wasn’t sure if my cousin or her boyfriend would either, I really wanted to make this appetizer. I haven’t had prosciutto in forever! Almost every time I visit my aunt at her beach house in Delaware, she’ll have honeydew melon slices wrapped in prosciutto as an appetizer before dinner. Yum, yum, yum, yum, yum!Print

I was expecting this to have a bit more flavor than it did. I think next time I’ll use a flavored cream cheese, maybe a veggie one or something to add a little more kick to this.
