Since melon season is just about over, I wanted to post this uncomplicated recipe today so you could bid a fond farewell to this summertime staple. The pineapple mint shown in the photo is a nice touch.
1-1/2 cup cantaloupe chunks
1-1/2 cup honeydew chunks
1-1/2 watermelon chunks
1/2 cup red or green grapes
1/2 cup fresh dates, chopped coarsely
1/2 cup slivered almonds
2 ounces fresh orange juice
4 tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon mace
Fresh mint leaves
1. Combine fruit and nuts in a large bowl.
2. Mix together orange juice, honey and mace. (Heat honey a little if necessary to mix.)
3. Pour this liquid mix over the fruit.
4. Turn into a serving bowl and garnish with mint. Chill for an hour before serving.
Good cooking to you,
