Melon Fettuccini with Sweet Wine and Fresh Mint
- 2 ripe cantaloupes
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 (375 ml) bottle muscato wine (or other dessert wine), chilled
- 1 small bunch fresh mint, leaves picked and chopped fine
Peel and seed the cantaloupe. Using a mandoline with wide julienne blade, gently shave the melon into batons into 4 bowls or plates. (Do not try to arrange the melon batons on the plate, they are fragile.)
Sprinkle each plate of melon with pinch of salt. Pour the chilled wine over top. Sprinkle with mint and serve immediately or chill in refrigerator until ready to serve.
