Fresh melon boats, carved in only minutes and overflowing with kiwifruit, ripe berries and juicy melon balls, are the perfect refresher. A sweet-and-sour glaze gives the fruits unexpected zest, perfect to finish off a summery lunch.
• Top the fruit boats with a scoop of refreshing fruit sorbet.
• Use this orange glaze recipe to drizzle on cooked salmon fillets.
• Omit the melon and use fresh pineapple chunks instead. Serve in the pineapple shells or small glass serving bowls.
Balsamic vinegar has a subtly sweet taste, so it can give food sweetness without the need for much sugar.
