Melon  with  mint, ginger  and  orange

Melon was once a treat. We're blase about it now, but a simply dressed ripe
melon is wonderful.

Serves 4
Preparation time:
15 minutes.

1 ripe melon, such as cantaloupe or Charentais, cut into thin slices
1cm/&1/2in piece fresh
root ginger, peeled
and cut into thin strips
grated rind of &1/2 orange
juice of 1 large orange
shredded mint leaves
Arrange the melon on plates. Mix the ginger, orange rind and juice; drizzle
over the melon. Sprinkle over the mint. Can be made up to 6 hours ahead and
chilled. Remove from fridge 1o minutes before serving.

Cut it into strips instead of grating, if you prefer.
