All you need is a melon-baller and some melons, and in no time at all, you'll be lounging in the sun enjoying this tasty mix of fruit. via Love Chef Laura Ingredients 1 small seedless watermelon 1 small cantaloupe 1 small honeydew melon 1 quart fresh strawberries 1 tbsp honey (or maple syrup if vegan) 1 lime small handful of fresh mint Instructions Cut the melons in half and scoop out any seeds in the center. Next, using a melon baller, create little balls by scooping out the melon flesh. Continue until all the melons are used up. If you do not have a melon baller, simply cut the melon into bize sized cubes. Next, remove the green tops from the strawberries and quarter. If they are larger strawberries, cut them into bite sized pieces. Place the strawberries into the bowl with the melon. Lastly, add the tablespoon of honey to a small bowl. Next, zest the lime and add to the bowl with the honey. Then juice the lime and add both to the same bowl. Give the dressing a gentle stir then drizzle over top of the melon and strawberries.
