Minted Fruit Salad

1 pint strawberries
3 kiwi fruits
1 medium sized cantaloupe
1 medium sized honeydew melon
handful of fresh mint leaves
1/2 cup fresh orange juice
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
3 tablespoons granulated sugar

Wash, drain and hull strawberries. Peel kiwis and slice thin, reserving 1 sliced kiwi for garnish.

With a melon-baller, cut balls from the melons. Mix all fruits together except for reserved kiwi. Chop mint leaves and tender stems very fine and sprinkle on fruits. Mix juices with sugar and pour over all. Toss gently and thoroughly. Arrange reserved kiwi slices on top and garnish with a fresh mint leaf. Chill for 2-3 hours and serve cold.
