Melon in Lime and Honey

Yields Serves 4
Melon in Lime and Honey

Cut the flesh of the melons into 1-inch slices, or, if you have a melon baller, cut them into melon balls.


Peel the lime with a sharp knife or vegetable peeler and cut the zest in thin slices. Add the sliced zest to the melon. Squeeze the juice of the lime over the melon.


In a small saucepan, heat the honey over low heat just enough to liquefy, about 1 minute, stirring. Add the honey to the melon mixture and toss gently. Let the mixture sit for at least 1 hour in the refrigerator.


Serve in small glass bowls. Garnish with sprigs of mint.
