There’s nothing that cools you down on a hot summer day than fresh melon. This fruit dish is no exception. Seedless grapes, sliced strawberries, or any of your favorite berries may also be added or used in place of the peaches and blueberries.

Ingredients:

  • 1 C water
  • 3/4 C sugar
  • 3 Tbsp. lime juice
  • 1 1/2 tsp. fresh mint chopped
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 small watermelon, cubed
  • 1 small cantaloupe, cubed
  • 1 small honeydew melon, cubed
  • 1 large peach, sliced
  • 1 C fresh blueberries

Directions:

Pour the water into a saucepan placed over medium high heat. Stir in the sugar, lime juice, mint, and salt, and bring the mixture to a boil. Allow the syrup to boil for 2 minutes, and then remove from heat. Cover and cool completely.

Place the watermelon, cantaloupe, and honeydew cubes into a large non-metal bowl. Add the peach slices and blueberries and toss gently to combine. Pour the cooled syrup over the fruit and gently toss again to coat. Cover the bowl and chill for at least 2 hours, being sure to stir frequently. Drain the fruit well before serving. Makes 6 servings.
