  • 4 cups cubed watermelon seedless
  • 3 –4 cups cubed cantaloupe

  • In a saucepan over medium-high heat, bring orange juice, lemon juice, and brown sugar to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla extract. Set aside to cool.
  • Layer fruit in a large, clear glass bowl in this order: watermelon, cantaloupe, honeydew, strawberries, and blueberries. Pour cooled sauce over the fruit. Cover and refrigerate for 3–4 hours before serving.
