Squeeze lemon juice into a medium bowl. Peel and crush garlic and put it into the bowl along with the chives, olive oil, and red-pepper flakes. Drain and add cheese "cherries" or cut mozzarella into ¾- inch cubes and add to the mixture. Marinate at room temperature at least 2 hours.

Cut prosciutto slices in half lengthwise. Wrap 1 slice of prosciutto around each piece of cheese and 1 small sprig of dill. Secure with a toothpick and serve.

Small, cherry-sized balls of cow's milk mozzarella, packed in sealed plastic containers are available in the dairy section of many supermarkets or specialty stores.
