Yield: Serves 6

Ingredients

1/2 small cantaloupe, seeds and skin removed and cut into 1/2-inch cubes or long thin strips
1/4 honeydew melon, seeds and skin removed and cut into 1/2-inch cubes or long, thin strips
1/4 cup minced fresh mint
2 Tablespoons light honey
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
1-1/2 cups pitted fresh cherries*
Juice of two limes
Mint sprigs for garnish

Directions:

Put the cantaloupe, honeydew melon, and minced fresh mint in a bowl and turn several times.

Put the honey in a bowl with the lemon juice and stir until the honey dissolves, a minute or two. Pour this over the melons and turn several times. Add the cherries, turning them in as well.

Pour the lime juice over all, garnish with mint sprigs and serve.

*If possible, use a cherry pitter so cherries can be left whole.
