One of my all-time favorite desserts ...
My dad used to make this when I was a kid. It's a great dessert treat and so easy to fix. And now is the best time to make it because cantaloupes are at their peak of flavor ... and they're cheap. I got some for 89 cents a piece last week at Aldis. There's something about the velvety smooth ice cream paired with the sweet melon that I find irresistible. And it brings back lovely memories!
CANTALOUPE SUNDAE WITH ICE CREAM
• 1 Whole cantaloupe
• 4 Scoops vanilla ice cream
• 2 Sprigs mint
Cut melons in half, remove seeds, slice quarter size round off bottom of each melon half so it sits flat. Fill cavities with equal amounts of ice cream (approximately 2 scoops). Serve immediately with mint sprig garnish. You could also top these with fresh blueberries and strawberries. Serves 2.
