3 Points Plus Value

Prep time: 18 min

Serves: 4

Ingredients

2 cup(s) honeydew melon, diced

2 cup(s) (diced) cantaloupe, diced

3 Tbsp sugar, divided

2 tsp lime zest, freshly grated

2 Tbsp fresh lime juice

2 Tbsp mint leaves, fresh, slivered

Instructions

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. Yields 1 cup per serving.

Notes: For variety, try replacing some of the cantaloupe or honeydew with seedless watermelon. Or create a different flavor altogether by combining diced strawberries and peaches with orange juice and peel instead of the lime. Diced nectarines and raspberries with lemon juice and peel are also tasty.
