  • 1/2 cantaloupe
  • 1/2 honeydew melon
  • 1 pink grapefruit
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon liquid honey
  • pinch hot pepper flakes (optional)
  • 1/2 cup blueberry
  • 2 teaspoons slivered fresh mint leaves


Scrape out seeds from cantaloupe. Cut into 8 wedges; cut off skin. Set aside.

Cut off rind and outer membrane of grapefruit. Working over bowl to catch juice, cut between membrane and pulp to release fruit into bowl, squeezing membranes to extract juice.

Arrange melon and grapefruit on plates.

Remove all but 2 tbsp (25 mL) grapefruit juice from bowl and reserve to drink. Whisk lemon juice, honey, and hot pepper flakes (if using) into remaining juice in bowl. Stir in blueberries and half of the mint; spoon over fruit. Sprinkle with remaining mint.
