Prosciutto-Wrapped Melon Bites with Lime Drizzle

We do a lot of entertaining at our home, and I’m always on the lookout for good appetizers.  This one is great for summer when the melons are at their peak!  My friend, Blanca, found it in a Cooking Light magazine, and when she made it for me, I knew it was a keeper!  I could have eaten the whole dish as a meal!  I really like the flavors of the prosciutto and the melon together.  The lime drizzle with the red pepper and the fresh mint creates a really refreshing dish!  Instead of threading on skewers, I just wrapped them up and secured with a toothpick.
