Melon Fruit Salad With Ginger & Pomegranate Fused by Fiona Uyema

Melon Fruit Salad With Ginger & Pomegranate

This Melon Fruit Salad With Ginger & Pomegranate makes for the perfect sweet starter or light dessert. Ginger is an essential ingredient in Japanese savoury cooking, but it also adds a refreshing flavour to the syrup to flavour this simple melon fruit salad.

  • 1 Whole honeydew melon peeled and cut into bite-size cubes
  • 1 Pomegranate seeds removed
  • Mint leaves to garnish

For the syrup

  • 90 ml Water
  • 75 g Caster sugar
  • 40 g Ginger peeled and thinly sliced


  • Place all the ingredients for the syrup in a saucepan and bring to the boil. Immediately reduce to a simmer for about 10 minutes. Take off the heat and set aside to cool. Once cooled, remove the ginger pieces from the syrup (these can be added later as a topping to the salad if you like).
  • Put the melon and pomegranate seeds into a large serving bowl.
  • Pour the syrup over the fruit and mix well together.
  • Garnish with mint leaves. Serve immediately or store in the fridge.


I have suggested Honeydew melon in this recipe, but you could use any type of melon and equally a mix is really lovely too, like in the photo.
