This is a super easy summer dessert that could easily be served to guests. The adult version includes cassis, a French liqueur. You could easily adjust this for kids by omitting the cassis. This idea came from Rachael Ray. Enjoy!

I love melons of all kinds, and this is a lovely way to serve it. Had to borrow the Cassis, as we don't have much liquor in the house. All I had to do was tell my neighbor that of course he would get some. Simple but very lovely to look at. Thnx for posting, LifeIsGood. Made for ZWT5 for RRR.

So easy and so good. This was a perfect light dessert for our warm summer evening last night. DH is not much of an ice cream person, but he really liked the way the ice cream toned the tartness of the fruit. I did use your suggestion about omitting the liqueur for our dessert. Thanks for posting this recipe. Made for ZWT5.
