Melon with Mint-Lime Syrup
Cool and refreshing, this fruit dish is good any time of day.
Cut a variety of your favorite melons into bite-sized chunks. Chill. About an hour before serving, pour syrup over melons. Keep chilled until serving. To serve, spoon into individual fruit cups and garnish with a sprig of mint.
For 1/2 cup of mint-lime syrup:
Mix 1/2 cup sugar and 1/2 cup water in small saucepan. Add crushed mint leaves, a TBS lime juice, and a few drops of mint extract. Heat until it boils, stirring to dissolve sugar. Let boil a few minutes. Remove from heat. Cool before pouring over melon.
