Serve this pretty appetizer board for summer parties when watermelon, honeydew and cantaloupe are at their juiciest and tastiest. The sweetness of the melon plays wonderfully against the salty cheese and prosciutto, while a squeeze of lime and a sprinkle of fresh herbs add bright flavors and colors to the board.

Tips

Tip: To select the best melon, choose one that is heavy for its size in comparison to others--lift a few to test this out (this is key for watermelons especially). For most heirloom melons, they should be slightly soft at the stem end (where the melon was picked) and should have a lovely fragrant smell with hints of sweetness.
