Fresh melon & raspberry sauce
(adapted from a recipe on allrecipes.com)
1/2 honey dew melon
3 cups fresh unsweetened raspberries, plus extra for garnish
3 tablespoons agave nectar (or honey)
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
Add the clean raspberries to a blender. Cover and process until pureed. Add the agave, lemon juice and ginger and blend until smooth. Strain the mixture through a sieve and discard the seeds. Cover and store in the refrigerator until served.
Cut each melon half in 3 wedges and remove the seeds and rind. Using a sharp knife, carefully slice each piece of melon lengthwise toward the narrow end without cutting completely to the end. Repeat until you have four slices still attached at one end. Open the slices into a fan shape.
Place the melon wedges on the plate and spoon 2 tablespoons raspberry sauce on top. Garish with fresh mint and raspberries.
