            -(THis might be difficult
            -for you to do on the
            -boat so use crushed almonds
            -or pecans)
            Mint leaves for garnish
   Beat cream cheese and milk until smooth nd fluffy.  Set aside. Remove
   the rind from the melon and cut a little from one end so the melon
   will stand up. Slice off two inches from the other end.  Scoop out
   seeds. Fill the melon with 1 cup of fruit.  Frost the outside of the
   melon with cheese mixture.  Press coconut (crushed almonds, pecans)
   lightly into the cheese frosting and refrigerate. When ready to
   serve, place the melon on a serving platter and garnish with the mint
   leaves.  At the table, cut melon into 6 wedges and place each on a
   salad plate with some of the fruit inside the melon.  Top with
   remaining fruit and serve with Sesame Dressing.
