  • 4 cups diced melon a varied mix of cantaloupe, honeydew, and watermelon
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 inch piece fresh ginger root
  • 2 Tbsp fresh mint leaves minced
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  • Combine the sugar, lemon juice, and water in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil. Add the ginger piece and boil for 1 min. Place in an airtight container and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. You can leave this ginger syrup to infuse overnight if you want a stronger ginger taste. Once the ginger simple syrup has infused, strain through a sieve to remove ginger pieces.
  • Combine varied, diced melons in a large bowl.
  • Pour ginger syrup over the melon.
  • Add minced mint leaves and salt.
  • Toss to coat the melon pieces evenly in the ginger syrup and mint.
  • Serve immediately or refrigerate.
