Recipe by  

"Don't turn your nose up at this dish. Melon grills beautifully, and the minty sauce takes it to the next level. For a great dessert, serve it with big scoops of vanilla ice cream."

Grilled Cataloupe? You bet, this recipe was awesome. I would have never suspected grilled fruit could taste so good until I tasted this recipe at a friends house. I suspect it's got something to do with the ice cream and sauce on the side . . .

Not very impressive. The mint conflicted with the melon too much. I think it would have been better with only the butter and honey.

I made this for a BBQ dinner party last night. Everyone thought I was weird when I started putting cantaloupe on the grill, but then they tried it. Everyone loved it! I was pleasantly surprised myself. I served the cantaloupe over ice cream and poured the sauce on top. I will definitely make this again. Thanks for a really great and different recipe!

I was underwhelmed. The idea is cool, but there wasn't enough flavor for us. Bland.
