This was so refreshing but it really depends on the cantalope for flavor. So be sure the cantalopes are in season befor trying this rcipe.

Very pleased with this recipe. Nice, light summery dessert. I garnished with fresh raspberries instead of orange peel. I agree that you have to be careful with the cantaloupe since the seasonings are very subtle.

Hubby and son didn't care for it, but I did. I added more OJ, lime and sea salt to snazz up the flavor.
