Ingredients

  • 3 cups cantaloupe cut into bite-size chunks (about 1/2 a regular cantaloupe)
  • 3 cups watermelon cut into bite-size chunks (about 1 baby seedless watermelon)
  • 2 cups green or red grapes or combination
  • 3/4 cup orange juice
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • Juice from one lime
  • 1/2 chopped jalapeno pepper with or without seeds, more or less to taste
  • Grated lime peel from one lime grate the skin from the lime you will juice before juicing
  • 2 kiwis peeled and sliced

Instructions

  • In a resealable plastic bag, combine the cantaloupe, watermelon and grapes.
  • In a small bowl, whisk the orange juice, honey and lime juice. Stir in the jalapeno and lime peel.
  • Pour over the fruit. Seal bag, removing as much air as possible, and turn to coat.
  • Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  • Just before serving, add the peeled and sliced kiwi to the salad, tossing with the dressing to coat.
  • Serve with a slotted spoon.
  • Optionally, you could cut the melon into balls with a melon baller, but this takes longer and the contrast of the chunky melon pieces with the round grapes makes a nice presentation.
