Orange juice 1/2 Cup (8 tbs)
Confectioners sugar 1/4 Cup (4 tbs)


Combine 2 cups cantaloupe, 2 cups honey dew melon, and 2 cups watermelon in a large mixing bowl. Mix thoroughly, but gently, so that the fruit is not bruised. Thoroughly mix 1/2 cup of orange juice with 1/4 cup confectioner's sugar, and drizzle this thin sauce mixture over the top of the mixed melon chunks. Ladle the melon salad into a nice, clear serving bowl. Cover with plastic wrap, and chill in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
