Method

Cut the melon in half and remove the seeds. Using a melon baller, scoop up the melon into small balls. Place melon balls in a bowl and sprinkle lemon or lime juice all over them.

Take a small strip of prosciutto and wrap it around a melon ball.

Pierce through with a toothpick and add a piece of mozzarella if desired.

Repeat for all melon balls. Arrange on a platter.
