They look like precious, delicate sorbets. They even taste like them. On the hottest, longest, stickiest day of summer, go out early in the morning and buy a variety of ripe melons. Chill them all day and by the time the sun goes down, you will have an instant smorgasbord of refreshments that even come with their own edible plates.
Keep melons as chilled as possible.
Cut champagne and honeydew melons in half and scoop out balls of the flesh.
Arrange melon balls on melon plates. Resist the temptation to do any more than this.
