12 each Thin slices of Prosciutto
8 each Mint Leaves (chiflonade)

2 tbls. Honey
2 each Juice of Lime
Pinch Black Pepper
Pinch Salt
2/3 cup Lemon Oil

Whisk all ingredients together.

Honey Peppered Figs Ingredients:
1 cup Good quality Honey
1/3 cup Water
1 tspn. Cracked Black Pepper
12 each Black Mission Figs

Warm honey and water in saucepot until it simmers. Half the figs and place these and cracked pepper in honey syrup. Cool it to room temperature.

Peel the melon of all its skin and rind. Cut melon in 1/2 and seed. Slice melon in slices thin enough to be bendable. Place melon slices in medium size bowl. Drizzle vinaigrene on melon. Place the prosciutto on top of melon. Quickly pick up a serving size of prosciotto and melon; twist it over in your hand and place on a serving plate. Repeat this direction for all servings. It is important not to fuss too much once the melon and prosciutto is placed on the plate. The prosciutto will ball up it is dressed or fussed with too much.
