Insalata di Frutta Frizzante

Italians are crazy for watermelon but they don’t eat it ice cold. Mixed with honeydew, and cantaloupe, it makes a refreshing summer dessert. Use a melon baller to remove the flesh of the fruit. Insert it into the fruit and twist to make a ball. Just before serving, add a splash of sparkling wine like Asti Spumante or use a good champagne.


  • 2 cups honeydew melon balls
  • 2 cups cantaloupe melon balls
  • 2 cups watermelon balls
  • 4 tbsp warm honey
  • Asti Spumante


  1. Toss all the fruits together in a large bowl with the honey. Divide and fill 8 goblets or wine glasses with the fruit mixture. Just before serving. pour Asti Spumante, a sparkling dessert wine, into each glass or goblet. Serve immediately.
