Frosted cantaloupe salad

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
8 ounces Cream cheese, softened
2 tablespoons Milk
1 large Cantaloupe
6 cups Mixed fresh fruits (e g., bananas, apples, grapes, strawberries) cut into bite size pieces.
¾ cup Toasted flaked coconut (THis might be difficult for you to do on the boat so use crushed almonds or pecans)
\N \N Mint leaves for garnish

Beat cream cheese and milk until smooth nd fluffy. Set aside. Remove the rind from the melon and cut a little from one end so the melon will stand up. Slice off two inches from the other end. Scoop out seeds. Fill the melon with 1 cup of fruit. Frost the outside of the melon with cheese mixture. Press coconut (crushed almonds, pecans) lightly into the cheese frosting and refrigerate. When ready to serve, place the melon on a serving platter and garnish with the mint leaves. At the table, cut melon into 6 wedges and place each on a salad plate with some of the fruit inside the melon. Top with remaining fruit and serve with Sesame Dressing.
