Delicious! We chopped the mint very finely and tossed it with the lime in with the melon (used cantelope). Got lovely prosciutto di Parma which was less salty than others, and had a subtle rich flavor. Trimmed off fat. Followed another users advice and made a balsamic reduction into which we added ground anise, black pepper and a little chile oil for a slow and surprising heat to counter all the sweet. Then, to continue with the Meditteranean theme, served alongside of Black figs paired with a locally made goat cheese (very delicate and chewy without the pungent goat flavor) and homemade crispy sweet potato fries. Yummy!!!

I used the mint only as a garnish and secured the proscuitto with a tootpick. Also, used a combination of cateloupe and honeydew melon balls. Loved the sweet/salty combination.

I tried this recipe for New Year's Eve. The preparation was easy (although it took longer than I thought to cut the proscutto and wrap the melon balls) and the taste was good but by the time I served it to my guests it had gotten soggy even though it had been in the fridge. I would suggest serving this asap after preparing.
