1/2 small or medium melon, such as galia or cantaloupe (about 800g-1kg or 1/3lb-2 1/4lb total/unprepared weight of whole melon)

2 kiwi fruit, peeled, halved and sliced

Freshly squeezed or unsweetened orange juice, to taste

2 teaspoons orange-flavoured liqueur (optional)

1/4 teaspoon ground ginger, or to taste (optional)

Chopped mint leaves, to garnish

  1. Cut melon into quarters; remove seeds and peel. Dice flesh (or scoop it out using a melon baller); place melon flesh in a bowl.
  2. Add kiwi fruit and orange juice to melon. Pour over liqueur (if using) and sprinkle ginger on top (if using); stir gently. Cover and refrigerate for about 1 hour before serving, if desired.

  • 2 fresh nectarines or peaches can be substituted for the kiwi fruit. Alternatively, a 298g (10 1/2oz) can of mandarin segments in juice can be substituted for the kiwi fruit and orange juice. 
  • Try using 1 large ripe mango, peeled and stoned, instead of the melon.
