Cantaloupe with Citrus & Mint
Prep time
Total time
Fresh cantaloupe is super refreshing when paired with lime, lemon and mint.
Recipe type: Fruit
Cuisine: Fruit
Serves: 4
  • ½ lemon, juiced
  • ½ lime, juiced
  • ¼ c. fresh orange juice (about 1 orange)
  • 1 Tb. honey (I used orange blossom)
  • 2 Tb. fresh mint, chopped (+ some leaves for garnish)
  • ½ large cantaloupe, chopped or balls
  1. Combine the citrus and honey in a small bowl; stir well to dissolve the honey. Refrigerate at least 30 minutes before ready to serve.
  2. Prep the fruit and place into a bowl and refrigerate at least 30 minutes before serving,
  3. When ready to serve, add the mint into the citrus/honey mixture, and pour it over the melon; stir to combine.
  4. Serve in pretty dishes, garnished with fresh mint (optional).
This recipe can easily be modified, based on what you have available. Don't worry about the measurements being exact (eg. if you don't have all 3 citrus, just use more of what you have; if you don't have honey, use some granulated sugar [but let it dissolve well before refrigerating], replace the cantaloupe with another melon, etc.).
