Grilled Cantaloupe with Prosciutto and Mozzarella

Grilling cantaloupe wedges intensifies their sweetness. They’re perfect with the prosciutto and creamy mozzarella, which melts slightly when you drape it over the melon as it comes off the grill. This is a perfect appetizer before throwing on your veggies and proteins at a BBQ or even as a dessert during a hot summer day!
