  • 1/2 medium cantaloupe
  • 1/2 medium honeydew
  • 1/2 personal size watermelon
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon ginger paste
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup fresh mint


  • Using the larger end of a melon baller, scoop out as many melon balls as you can from the cantaloupe, honeydew and watermelon. I got around around 50 melon balls. Slide them onto skewers. You should be able to get 6 - 7 melon balls onto each skewer. Arrange the skewers on a rimmed baking sheet.
  • Whisk together the honey, lime juice, ginger paste, salt and half of the mint. Pour half of the marinade over the melon balls. Turn the skewers after 2 - 3 minutes, and pour the remaining marinade over them. Allow them to soak up the marinade for another 1 - 2 minutes, and serve with the remaining mint.
