Ingredients

2 cup honeydew melon, diced
2 cup cantaloupe, diced
3 Tbsp sugar, divided
2 tsp lime zest, freshly grated
2 Tbsp fresh lime juice
2 Tbsp mint leaves, fresh, slivered
4 piece mint leaves, for garnish


In a medium bowl, combine honeydew, cantaloupe, 2 tablespoons of sugar, lime zest and juice, and slivered mint. Refrigerate 15 minutes, tossing occasionally, until sugar dissolves and mixture is well chilled.


When ready to serve, spread remaining tablespoon of sugar onto a flat plate. Pour a little water into a shallow bowl and dip rim of each of 4 wine or martini glasses into water; press wet rims into sugar to coat edge of each glass. Spoon 1 cup of fruit mixture into each glass; garnish with mint sprigs.

This is an awesome melon salad and has always been a hit with young and old! I found it on the WW's recipe site and have used it mutiple times during the spring and summer months.
