Honey Lime Melon
No-cook and grilling recipes are something you'll be hearing from me about all summer long. Not only do I appreciate the no-cook solution, I also enjoy the ease of few ingredients, and any recipe that passes those two requirements is high on my list of "must try." Recipes that have five or less ingredients are great, but a mere three is awesome, especially if there's no cooking involved.
- Halve your melons and seed them, then scoop out bite-sized balls with a melon ball scooper and toss together in a large bowl. (If you don't have a melon ball scooper, a teaspoon will do -- though the result won't be quite as round.)
Whisk together the freshly-squeezed lime juice, honey and lime zest, then pour over the melon and gently toss to combine. Refrigerate for one hour for flavors to develop.

Everything worked in this simple yet delicious recipe. I would have never in a million years thought to drizzle lime and honey on melon. The result, so juicy and irresistible. Even my picky eater boys loved it!
This would be great for a potluck or end of the season sports party. Since it is so fresh and cool it would be nice as a pool side fruit if having a pool party. We used cantaloupe and watermelon, but I do have to say, the watermelon was the best. It soaked up most of the honey lime juice, making it even juicier than it normally is.
Although we don't own a melon ball scooper, the boys had a good time trying to make balls with a teaspoon, which worked out pretty well. Since the boys loved this recipe, and I don't think they could eat watermelon or canteloupe any other way now, I will purchase a melon ball scooper which will make it that much more fun for them.
