Orange Melon Salad
From: jtaylor

Watermelon and canteloupe are in aboundance here right now and one of the small farmers I do business with here had a good price on them so I bought a few of each since I love both of these fruits.
Here's something I threw together (It's an orginal!) that went to a get together with me and was a huge hit.
You might feel like adding some honeydew melon in or use any combination of melons you want.

  • 2 C. fresh squeezed orange juice
  • 2 slices of ginger
  • 4-6 C. of mixed melon balls or cubes
  • pinch of cinnamon (optional)
  • 1 1/2 T slivered fresh mint.
1.Bring orange juice, cinnamon, and ginger slices to a boil over medium heat.
Continue to boil until juice reduce to 1/2-3/4 of it's original amount.
Remove from heat and discard ginger slices.
Let cool.

2. In a shallow pan arrange fruit and pour juice over.
Chill for at least 2 hours to overnight.

3.Transfer fruit to a serving bowl.
Pour juice over the top and garnish with slivered mint.
