Honey Lime Melon Trio

Thursday, April 2, 2015

I wrote this recipe right after Brian and I had just returned home from celebrating our 7-year anniversary on an Alaskan cruise. We had such a wonderful time enjoying each other’s company all week. Another thing that we enjoyed all week was the food! I had been in a little bit of a food rut, but all the wonderful food on the cruise has inspired me to try lots of new recipes! One of our favorites from the cruise was a Melon Trio appetizer that I knew I had to recreate as soon as we got home! I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Honey Lime Melon Trio

1 Cantaloupe
1 Honeydew Melon
1 Personal Sized Watermelon
3 Limes + Additional Lime Zest for Garnish
2 Tablespoons Honey

1. Use a melon baller to scoop all the flesh from the honeydew, cantaloupe, and watermelon. Place melon balls in a large bowl.
2. Zest the limes over the melon balls.
3. Juice the limes and whisk the lime juice with honey until combined.
4. Pour honey lime mixture over melon balls and stir to coat.
5. Refrigerate for an hour before serving.
6. Garnish with additional lime zest.
