Honeydew-Orange Toss

Prep time 20 mins
Yield Makes 6 cups
We used honeydew melon, but this recipe is just as refreshing with cantaloupe, Crenshaw, or watermelon.


  • 1/3 cup fresh lemon juice (about 3 lemons)
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice (1 lime)
  • 1/2 honeydew melon, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes (about 4 cups)
  • 2 cups navel orange sections (2 oranges)*

How to Make It

  1. Whisk together lemon juice, powdered sugar, and lime juice in a large bowl. Add honeydew melon and orange sections, and gently toss.

  2. *1 (11-oz.) can mandarin oranges, drained, may be substituted.
