Prepare this simple appetizer ahead, and relax during those last few minutes before your guests arrive.
cantaloupe, casaba, honeydew or Spanish melon (3 pounds)

Cut cantaloupe in half; scoop out seeds and fibers. Cut each half lengthwise into 6 wedges; remove rind. Cut crosswise slits, 1 1/2 inches apart, in each melon wedge.
Cut prosciutto into 1-inch strips. Place several strips of prosciutto over each wedge; push prosciutto into slits.
Fresh or dried figs are a classic accompaniment to this savory Italian ham.
Cut melon into bite-size pieces. Wrap each piece in strips of prosciutto, and secure with toothpicks.
