  • 2 cantaloupe melons peeled, seeded, and cut into chunks
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
  • Pinch of fleur de sel
  • 1-inch piece of fresh ginger, peeled and cut into strips, to garnish 2.5-cm
  • Fresh mint leaves to garnish


  • Put the melons, oil, ginger, and fleur de sel in a food processor or blender and blend until smooth.

Fleur de sel ("flower of salt") is French sea salt. It is very delicate and dissolves instantly. You can get it from amazon.com (affiliate link) or use salt you have on hand.
