DIRECTIONS

  • Put melons on a plate to collect juice, cut melons in 1/2 lengthwise.
  • Clean and cut off rind of melons.
  • While the melon is still on the plate, cut thin slices lengthwise so the slices are long. (For a thinner slice, use a potato peeler).
  • Leave the melon on the plate until ready to assemble your "sushi".
  • On a cutting board, cut thin, long julienne sticks of jicama. Cut the sticks 1/2" to 1" longer than the widest of your melon strips.
  • Pour the melon juice into a small bowl and mix in the honey and ginger.
  • Lie strips on cutting board, one at a time.
  • Place 3-4 sticks of jicama on melon flush with one side of the melon - -this will allow a flat side when the rolled "sushi" sits up.
  • Roll the melon slice around the jicama and sit up on its side. Trim any jicama that might hang over so it sits flat.
  • Drizzle the honey sauce over the "sushi".
  • Sprinkle sesame seeds lightly over the fruit.
  • You may toast the seeds if you wish a nuttier flavor.
