Recipe: Fruit in Cantaloupe Shells

During cantaloupe season, a delightful fruit SALAD can be made by combining several different kinds of fruit with the meat of cantaloupe and serving the mixture in the cantaloupe shells. Such a SALAD is an excellent one to serve when dainty refreshments are desired or when something unusual is wanted for a nice luncheon.
Cut cantaloupes in half crosswise, and, using the French cutter, cut some of the meat into round balls. Dice the remainder and mix with any combination of fruit desired. Place this in the cantaloupe shells after cutting points in the top edge. Garnish with the balls cut from the cantaloupe and serve with any desired Dressing.
