Melon balls are a great starter to a summer meal; they are also fun to prepare.
- Complexity: very easy
- 1 melon-baller
- Assorted melons
- Mint sprigs for garnish
You can use any type of melon that you like. Cantaloupe is one of my favorites. You can also use different types of melons if you want a colorful and tasty appetizer.
- Cut the melons in half and seed them.
- Use the melon-baller and make as many melon balls as you can. Don't worry about making perfectly round melon balls; the shape doesn't change the flavor of the melon.
- Mix all the balls in a large bowl and place the sprigs of mint decoratively on top as garnish. Enjoy!
To add a little pizazz to your melon (for the over 21 crowd) pour a little vodka over the melon balls and mix thoroughly.
