  • Summary

    After such a substantial meal, you'll want to keep things light for dessert. A little fancier than a fruit salad yet almost as easy, this cool combination of musky cantaloupe and honeydew gets an unexpected fillip from icy granita. Don’t worry if the granita melts faster than you expect—it will slump into a lovely sauce over the fruit.

    Ingredients

    • 3 cups water
    • 2/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon sugar, divided
    • 1 1/2 cups packed basil leaves
    • 1/2 cup fresh lime juice, divided
    • 1 ripe cantaloupe
    • 1 ripe honeydew
    • 1/4 cup mint leaves
