Grub It Up: Salted Prosciutto-Wrapped Watermelon

Mom and I are OBSESSED with this seemingly bizarre snack combo we came up with recently (mom is also obsessed with her new black plates -- can you tell!?). The boys in our house don't particularly care for it, but we think it's perfect. It's salt, it's sweet, it's pretty much the perfect summer snack. We have it for breakfast, too. Mom doesn't even normally like watermelon (how un-American!), but she loves this. You have to try it!

- watermelon, sliced into 1 1/2" thick wedges
- sea salt
- thinly sliced prosciutto (about 1 piece per 2 watermelon slices)
- olive oil
- balsamic vinegar
- goat cheese
- mint leaves for garnish

Sprinkle watermelon slices with sea salt. Cut each slice of prosciutto in half length-wise and wrap one piece around each watermelon slice. Drizzle olive oil and balsamic vinegar to taste. Sprinkle goat cheese over the wrapped slices and garnish with mint. Devour. Repeat.
