Description

This easy breakfast starter is refreshing and tangy. It is easy to prepare and looks great on a black plate. Terrific with Lime-Basil Sorbet.

Ingredients

  • 1 Honeydew Melon, ripe
  • 1 Lime , juice of
  • 2 T Gin
  • 1 Lemon, zest of
  • 2 T Mint, chopped

Instructions

Cut melon into 6 wedges (top to bottom) and cut off rind. Place in large plastic container with lid along with juice and gin. Marinate in fridge for 1-2 hours, turning over container from time to time to coat all slices. When ready to serve, slice each wedge into 4-5 thin slices and arrange as a fan on the plate. Drizzle remaining marinade over slices and garnish with lemon zest and mint. Place a small serving of Lime-Basil Sorbet on top or beside, if you wish.
Serves 6.
*To test for ripeness in a Honeydew, first pick a melon that feels like suede then give the melon a shake and if you can hear the seeds inside, chances are you have a ripe one.

Notes

Makes a great luncheon dessert too!
