Ingredients

  • 1/2 honey dew melon
  • 1 red grapefruit
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar

Method

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

Cut rind and outer membrane from grapefruit. Over bowl, cut between membrane and pulp to release fruit into bowl, squeezing membranes to extract juice. Whisk sugar and lime juice into bowl. Stir in blackberries and half of the mint.
