FANTASTIC! This is a great combination. I used cantelope AND honeydew, strawberries and a few blueberries. I used a mellon baller for the melons and I cut the strawberries in half and the blueberries left as there are. I presented this as a dessert and put into frozen Margarita glasses...could also use Martini glasses with a fresh sprig of mint on the side. SO REFRESHING!!
