Melon with Basil-Lime Granita is a perfect summer dessert, light and refreshing. Blend a simple sugar syrup, basil, lime juice, and freeze, scraping every 30 minutes to get a slushy ice texture for the granita. Then serve it on top of canteloupe and honeydew macerated in a little bit of sugar. To go over the top, serve with a delicious, not-too-sweet cornmeal cookie. A definite hit dessert.
