Grilled Glazed Prosciutto and Melon

Grilled Glazed Prosciutto and Melon
6 strips sliced prosciutto (in our Deli)
6 wedges cantaloupe or honeydew melon, rind removed
6 bamboo skewers*
3 tbsp. Dalmatia Fig Spread (in our Deli)
2 tbsp. red wine vinegar
Olive oil
Baby arugula (optional)
Snipped fresh basil

This Italian favorite is given a distinctly Croatian accent by the addition of a sweet fig spread, a traditional cooking ingredient in Croatia.

Prep: 20 minutes, Cook: 5 minutes, Serves: 4

1. Wrap prosciutto around melon slices and thread 2 at a time onto 2 skewers. Stir together fig spread and vinegar in a small bowl.

2. Brush melon lightly with oil and grill over medium-high heat for 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until prosciutto is browned and crisp, brushing occasionally with some of the fig mixture. Place on a bed of arugula, if you like, and drizzle with remaining fig mixture. Sprinkle with basil.  

*Soak skewers in water for at least 10 minutes before using to keep from burning.
