Ginger-Mint Melon Salad Recipe

Ginger-Mint Melon Salad Recipe


Cantaloupe, Watermelon, Honey dew, I just love them all. I love how refreshing they are. Cantaloupe is definitely my favorite, but all the melons have a special place in my heart. I love having this Ginger-Mint Melon Salad recipe around on these hot summer days, it’s just what I need to cool down and quench an appetite

The melon pieces are coated in a fun ginger syrup and sprinkled with fresh mint. It’s super light, super simple, super melony, and super tasty. Best eaten on a beach, boat, or just sunbathing. It’s picnic fare worth bragging about.

Ginger-Mint Melon Salad
Recipe type: Salad
Yields: 4
  • 4 cups varied, diced melon, such as Cantaloupe, honey dew, and watermelon
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1½ inch piece of fresh ginger root,
  • 2 tbsp minced fresh mint leaves
  • ¼ tsp salt
  1. Combine the sugar,water, and lemon juice in a small saucepan. Bring it to a boil. Add the ginger piece and boil for 1 min. Place in an airtight container and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. You can leave this ginger syrup to infuse overnight if you want a stronger ginger taste, or less for more mellow. Once ginger simple syrup has infused, strain through a sieve to remove ginger pieces.
  2. Combine the melon in a large bowl.
  3. Pour the ginger simple syrup over the melon.
  4. Add minced mint leaves and salt.
  5. Toss to coat the melon pieces evenly in the ginger syrup and mint.
  6. Serve immediately or refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
