Marinated Melon with Honey Ginger Cream

A delightful treat and a lovely way to use this luscious fruit.

2 cups fresh strawberries, hulled and halved
1/2 cup orange juice
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 cup low-fat sour cream or very fresh plain yogurt
3 tablespoons honey
3 tablespoons finely chopped crystallized ginger

Garnish: fresh mint leaves or lemon basil

Place melon chunks and strawberries in a large shallow dish. Combine orange juice and brown sugar and pour over the fruit. Marinate the fruit mixture in the refrigerator for 2 hours.
