Prosciutto and Melon Skewers with Balsamic Glaze

Can you believe Memorial Day Weekend is NEXT weekend?

I sure as hell can’t. 

Ok that’s a tiny lie, I CAN believe it – because that’s just how quickly time is flying by. But I can’t because, ya know? Sometimes it still feels like the middle of February. Ay, time always wins.

But I can feel it. Summer is blooming! Kids are counting down the days until school is out, beach vacations are getting booked, the nightly sunsets get more beautiful each day.

Last night as I was driving home stressing about all the things I need to get done today, I sat for an extra second at a stop light and took a (much-needed) breath.

The sun was setting perfectly; I rolled the windows down, turned up the tunes. I forgot about to do lists, and things I should’ve accomplished this week but haven’t gotten to, and I just allowed myself to enjoy the preview of a summery night.

It’s silly, but sometimes when there is so much going on, it’s nice to do something cliché like drive with the windows down and the music all the way, not thinking about a damn thing. Even during hectic days, summer does that to me – I want to kick off my shoes and spend all my time outside, listening to nothing but happy music, watch the sun turn different shades of orange.

And Memorial Day Weekend is the start of it all! We pop open the bottles of rosé, rip the tags off new dresses, get a little burnt the first time (or two) out in the sun.

And we eat all the delicious summery things we can eat.

That of course, includes these melon skewers. But you probably already knew that!

They’re sweet and fresh, with a little hint of saltiness from the prosciutto and mozzarella (the bestttt!). And that little drizzle of balsamic glaze? Well game over.

These will be on my party menu all summer long!

  1. Looks so good, perfect quick refreshing meal! Will have to share with britt as she had apps like this at her wedding!

  2. I will be the first to admit I am the biggest nerd on the planet, so I’m TOTALLY into doing super cliché things like rolling the windows down in the car, blasting the fun tunes and singing louder than I probably should since I’m tone def. 🙂 It’s just so…. fantastic. So, I’m glad you did that and forgot your woes… even if only for a minute! And, summer totally does the same thing to me, it makes me just want to chillax with a glass of rose, sit out in the sun with a book and FORGET any responsibilities. Anyways, THESE SKEWERS! SO SUMMER!! Seriously, you made these with my favorite summer ingredients! Fruit. Check! prosciutto. Check! Cheese. Check! And ALL da balsamic glaze! Check check check!! I feel like you made these just for ME! 🙂 Pinned! Cheers, girlie! XO

  3. I’m not even sure there is one specific childhood memory that melon ballers evokes in me but I just think they’re so Cute! Perfect gorgeous app to dig mine out to use! Yum.

  4. What is it about windows down and music blasting? This morning it was Paramore. Probably angrier than my neighbors want to hear but I mean who doesn’t love the #lesbihonest rocker chick playlist. This combo is THE BEST and so so refreshing. Guessing this will have to make an appearance at the cape next weekend! Have the best weekend Shelly!

  5. These are so fun! Prosciutto and melon go together like chocolate and peanut butter 🙂 Great combo! I will be hosting my son’s birthday party next weekend and I’m thinking these are the perfect appetizer. Also – I hear ya – how is it already May!?
