Breakfast Blackberry Salad

1/2 medium-sized ripe cantaloupe
2 ripe kiwi fruit
1 pint ripe strawberries
1/2 pint fresh blackberries
3 Tbsp. chopped fresh mint plus 4 whole sprigs
1/4 c. fresh-squeezed orange juice

Scoop out cantaloupe with melon baller and place balls in bowl, about two cups. Pour any cantaloupe juice in bowl. Peel kiwi. Cut crosswise into thin slices, then quarter slices. Add to cantaloupe. Set aside four of the most attractive strawberries for garnish. Hull and slice enough strawberries lengthwise to make one cup place in the bowl. Add blackberries. Sprinkle fruit salad with chopped mint leaves and drizzle with orange juice. Toss gently. Refrigerate, covered, for 1/2 hour for flavors to blend. Divide salad among four bowls. Garnish each with a whole strawberry and a sprig of mint.
