If you’ve never paired watermelon with prosciutto then you need to stop what you’re doing and change that. The refreshing fruit perfectly complements the salty meat, and the addition of mint takes this fusion from good to great. Finish these skewers off with a drizzle of orange blossom honey balsamic reduction and you have a tasty appetizer for any occasion.
