Melon, Mozzarella, and Prosciutto Appetizer

This is really easy and very tasty! And I think it looks really pretty.

-1/2 cantaloupe
-1/2 honey dew
-1/4 lb. thinly sliced prosciutto
~8 oz. fresh mozzarella
~3 TBSP rosemary
-fresh ground pepper
-skewers, preferably about 4 inches long

1. Use a melon baller to make fruit balls out of your cantaloupe and honey dew.
2. Use the melon baller to make balls out of your fresh mozzarella (this is a bit harder...ours were definitely not perfect circles.
3. Tear off pieces of prosciutto and wrap them around the melon balls, spearing them with the skewer as you go. Alternate a honey dew ball, mozzarella piece, and cantaloupe ball.
4. After you've made all your skewers, drizzle EVOO on top of them and then sprinkle the rosemary and top with ground pepper.
