Goat Cheese Skewers with prosciutto and cantaloupe on a white plate

Cantaloupe, Prosciutto & Goat Cheese Truffle Skewers

Sweet cantaloupe, salty prosciutto, and tangy goat cheese come together beautifully in these Cantaloupe, Prosciutto & Goat Cheese Truffle Skewers. These are simple appetizers for a sophisticated palate!

Tips for picking the best cantaloupe:

• Choose melons that feel heavy for their size. This indicates juiciness and a higher concentration of flavor.
• With cantaloupe, push your fingers on the section where the vine was attached. It should be slightly soft (not mushy or hard) and smell slightly sweet and fresh.
