If you need a little extra push to get back into cantaloupes, this may do it. Melon Minders are just a way to make the melons just a little more desirable by making them into chilled melon balls with an extra punch. It’s sort of like the 5th of May (Cinco De Mayo) meets the 4th of July.
4 medium cantaloupes, about 3 pounds each scooped into balls.
1 fifth of Margarita Mix. Several options are: Jose Cuervo, Margaritaville, and Freshios. (Another option is to use your favorite straight tequila and your own recipe.)
3 limes, cut into wedges
Salt and pepper for serving
After making the melon ball, chill them really well. Two hours at least, over night would be good. Put them in a glass bowl and pour your favorite Margarita mix over the melon balls.
Serve with the lime wedges so they can be squeezed over the melon balls, which can be salted or peppered to the tastes of your quests.© Food Safety News
