  • 3 cups cantaloupe, cut into 1/2" pieces
  • 4 oz. prosciutto, each slice torn into 12 pieces
  • 8 oz. pearl mozzarella, drained*
  • 1/4 cup pesto
  • 2 Tbsp. balsamic glaze*
  • Salt and fresh cracked pepper


  • Skewer a toothpick with mozzarella, then prosciutto, then cantaloupe.
  • Repeat, placing each skewer on a serving plate as you go. It will fill 2 plates or a large platter, depending on how much you space them out.
  • Once all skewers are complete, spoon a small amount of pesto onto each skewer.
  • Top with a small amount of balsamic glaze (the squirt bottle on store bought glaze makes this really easy but a spoon can be used as well).
  • Sprinkle fresh cracked pepper and salt over the top of the skewers and serve immediately.


  • You can sub pearl mozzarella with ciliegine mozzarella, cutting each into 6 pieces.
  • To make your own balsamic glaze: Heat 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar and 3 Tbsp. sugar (white, brown or coconut) in a small pan over medium heat, whisking to dissolve sugar while bringing to a simmer. Reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring occasionally until vinegar has reduced by about half. Remove glaze from stove, let sit for 1-2 minutes, then spoon over prepared skewers.
  • Skewers can be made up to two hours ahead of time and topped with pesto and balsamic glaze, salt, and pepper right before serving. Put them standing up in a sealing container and refrigerate until ready to serve.
