Melon Salad

This fresh Melon Salad gets an added touch of sweetness from homemade rum syrup. Watermelon, cantaloupe, honeydew and blueberries combine to make a colorful dish for your next party or picnic.



  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup light rum
  • 1/3 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1 tsp zest from lime
  • 1/4 of watermelon
  • 1 cantaloupe
  • 1 honeydew melon
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries


Bring the water to a boil over medium high heat.

Stir in the sugar, reduce to low and simmer for 3 minutes.

Add the rum and simmer an additional 2 minutes, stirring constantly.

Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly.

Stir in lime juice and lime zest. Set aside.

Dice the fruit into bite-sized pieces, or cut using a melon-baller.

Combine the cut fruit and blueberries in a large bowl.

Pour in the sugared rum blend and toss gently to coat.
