Specialty Recipe

Marinated Melon

This easy breakfast starter or luncheon dessert is refreshing and tangy. It is easy to prepare and looks great on a black plate.

Marinated Melon Ingredients:
1 honeydew melon, ripe*
Juice of 1 lime
2 Tablespoons of gin
Lemon zest
Chopped mint

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 to 2 hours, turning over container from time to time to coat all slices. When ready to serve, slice each wedge into 4 to 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 Fresh Lime-Basil Sorbet on top or beside if you wish.

Serves: 6

*Note: To test for ripeness in a Honeydew, first pick a melon that feels like suede then give the melon a shake. If you can hear the seeds inside, chances are you have a ripe one.
