Cut melons in half, remove seeds with a spoon, scoop the flesh and place in a bowl.

Put the melon shells aside for later.

Wash, dry and cut into tiny stripes the mint leaves. Dice the cheese into 1/2 cm (1/5") cubes. Cut the sliced prosciutto into 1cm large stripes. Add everything into the bowl with mellon.

Add the rice as well, season with EVOO, salt and pepper, and stir well.
