Melon Cup Fruit Salad

Share

We need more liquid in summer than in cooler months. Drink fresh lemonade and consume fruit with high water content, such as melons and berries. Fruit's added benefit is natural sugar, which gives you energy for outdoor activities. Fresh mint is a surprising, refreshing addition to fruit salad (and it grows like crazy in backyard gardens!).

3 cups (750 ml) mixed melons like watermelon, honeydew or cantaloupe
2 cups (500 ml) mixed berries
2 Tbsp (30 ml) fresh mint, thinly sliced
Zest from 1 lemon

Cut honeydew or cantaloupe in half and carefully scoop out flesh with a melon baller or cut in cubes, leaving melon halves intact. Combine all ingredients in a bowl, place in melon "cups" and serve.
