      Summer at its absolute best. This is so beautiful and taste so great. Was shocked that ginger and cantaloupe would complement each other so well. Absolutely loved this and will be put into our favorites cook book. Thanks so much.

      The Ginger which I diced and then with some squeezed the juice over the melon is just so refreshing. I garnished with nasturtium and lavender. Thanks Sharon for a beautiful, easy, healthy, tasty and refreshing dish.
