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.
