Melon Surprise

  • 1 Cantaloupe – medium, halved and seeded
  • 1 Honeydew – medium, halved and seeded
  • 2 pkg. Unflavored Gelatin
  • 4 T. Sugar
  • 1 1/2 c. Water – boiling
  • 1 c. Yogurt – plain
  • Food Coloring – if desired
  • 3/4 c. Strawberries
  • 3/4 c. Grapes – seedless

Scoop out the cantaloupe and honeydew leaving a 1/2 inch shell. Drain and chill. Puree enough cantaloupe meat to equal 1/2 cup. Do the same with the honeydew. Chop the remaining and reserve. In a medium bowl, mix the gelatin with the sugar and add the boiling water. Stir until the gelatin is dissolved. With a wire whip, blend in the yogurt and pureed fruit. Add food coloring if desired. Chill the mixture until the consistency of unbeaten egg whites. Fold in the strawberries and grapes, along with the chopped cantaloupe and honeydew. Pour into prepared melon shells. Chill until firm. Serve in wedges.

Serves 8 to 10
