I found a recipe similar to this browsing through Instagram. Check out the original by clicking here. This is by far one of the most refreshing salads/sides for the summer! If you are as big of a fan of sweet and salty, as I am…you are going to love, love, love! There is absolutely no cooking involved…just put together…you can make your own pesto if you want…I decided to use one of my favorites from Delallo Foods!

I have found that this recipe will make about 12 to 15 skewers. Take a melon baller and create balls out of both the watermelon and cantaloupe. Grab a skewer and first place a piece of prosciutto…I like to kind of fold mine. Add a cantaloupe ball, then a fresh basil leaf, then end with a mozzarella ball. Continue up the skewer doing this three times for large skewers and once for small skewers. I alternated the watermelon and cantaloupe balls.

Once all skewers are finished, place on platter…season with kosher salt and pepper. Drizzle with pesto. ENJOY immediately or chill for a few minutes! Refrigerate leftovers and serve the next day…the flavor just gets better!
