RECIPE: Melon Balls with Fresh Mint

Melon Balls with Mint

Melon Balls with Fresh Mint
Serves 4

2 cantaloupes
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 cup mint, small leaves

Cut each cantaloupe in half and scoop out the seeds. Make melon balls with both sizes of the melon ball scoop because it looks nice to have both sizes all mixed up together. Chiffonade the mint leaves. Sprinkle the sugar over the melon balls. Toss in the mint and gently mix everything together. Serve.

Wow, how very perfect - melons are at their peak here and mint is wild in my backyard.

Tanna - well then that is perfect!

Make some minto pesto then you can have fresh mint for savory dishes during the winter.

Paz- thanks for hosting us this week.

I love adding mint to whatever fruit I have on hand when unexpected company ends up staying for a meal. Somehow the mint impresses everyone. If only they knew how easy it is.

Thanks for sharing.

such a refreshing treat! Lovely!
The cantaloupes I bought a month ago still had no flavor... probably still not in season (?). Just bought two more today and see any luck.

Gabriella True said...

Ruth - Yes, adding fresh mint just adds IT to fruit.

gattina - I got a terrible one two weeks ago. terrible. I threw it out.
