An Italian recipe that combines fresh watermelon and cantaloupe with honey, balsamic vinegar and black pepper. This Italian recipe is a perfect light appetizer or a low fat dessert.

  • Servings: 4


2 cups Chilled & Seeded Watermelon Balls
2 cups Chilled & Seeded Cantaloupe Balls
¼ cup Honey
1 Tbsp Balsamic Vinegar
Freshly Cracked Black Pepper, optional


Divide chilled watermelon and cantaloupe among 4 dessert dishes or stemless champagne flutes. Stir together honey and balsamic vinegar and drizzle some over each serving. If desired, sprinkle with freshly ground black pepper and garnish with fresh mint sprigs.

Helpful Tips:

I like to serve it out of champagne flutes with a sprig of mint to add a bit of sophistication to this fantastic seasonal produce.
