CHILLED MELON WITH LIME AND GINGER

It is melon season, the perfect time to enjoy this light and refreshing summer dessert.  It was my contribution to a recent potluck.  All loved it.  And, it is easy. This recipe serves four.melon.bolg

2 ripe charentais (cantaloupe) melons

2 Tbsp sugar

2 Tbsp water

Zest and juice of one lime

A one-inch piece of ginger

Using a melon baller, scoop out little balls from the melon and place in a serving bowl.

Dissolve sugar in water. Wash lime and remove zest with a zester or fine grater.  Squeeze lime and add juice  and zest to water mixture. Grate ginger and stir it in.  Use less if you prefer less of a bite.

Combine melon with lime-ginger syrup.  Chill for at least an hour before serving.
