Summer Melon and Mint Salad



This post is really less of a recipe and more of an idea, but only because the recipe itself is so simple. I straight up stole the idea from The Everygirl and tweaked it only slightly... by adding liquor. OK, it was only a small dash of liqueur, but still more fun than no booze, no? This recipe is so tasty and refreshing in the summer heat. Also, it's healthy enough that I could call it breakfast and feel pretty good about that.



Summer Melon and Mint Salad

Ingredients

1/2 watermelon
1/2 large cantaloupe
1/2 large honeydew
3 T fresh mint leaves, diced
2 T honey
1 T Domaine de Canton, or other ginger liqueur (optional)

Directions

  1. Combine mint, honey and liqueur in a small bowl. 
  2. Using melon baller, scoop out insides of fruit into large bowl.
  3. Drizzle honey mixture over fruit and toss to coat.


**Side Note:  This melon ball scoop is the best example of the power of Amazon I have ever seen. One day, I decided I randomly wanted one, signed on to Amazon, bought one for $1.19 with free shipping, and it arrived 2 days later. Unbelievable.
