Prosciutto Apple Wedges

The juicy crunch of an apple wedge combined with sweet cream cheese and salty prosciutto are a delicious combination.


  • 4 medium apples (Red Delicious, Cortland, Empire, or Ida Red)
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 4 ounces reduced-fat cream cheese, softened
  • 8-ounces prosciutto slices


  1. Slice each apple into 8 wedges. Brush each cut surface with lemon juice.
  2. Spread cream cheese thinly on each cut side. Wrap a thin slice of prosciutto around each wedge. Serve immediately or refrigerate, and remove from the refrigerator 30 minutes before serving time.


  • Try substituting smoked salmon for the prosciutto.
  • If preparing this recipe as gluten free, just be sure to use a brand of prosciutto that is free of gluten.
