Ingredients

Directions

Combine the ginger, honey and 1 cup water in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, remove from the heat and let sit until cooled to room temperature. Drain, discarding the ginger, and stir in the lime juice.

Put the watermelon in a large bowl, and add the ginger-honey syrup. Cover and refrigerate to chill, at least 1 hour up to 4 hours, tossing the watermelon occasionally.

Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spread the coconut out on a baking sheet, and bake until lightly golden, 6 to 8 minutes; let cool.

When ready to serve, drain most of the liquid off the watermelon. Add the blueberries and lime zest, and toss to combine. Sprinkle with the toasted coconut.
