Today’s recipe is a refreshing summer salad that you’ll want to put on repeat the whole season through. It’s got bright crisp flavors of fresh, sweet melon, mint, tart lime, sweet honey and crunchy toasted almonds. It’s grown up enough to serve at any summer soiree and still accessible enough to please the little ones too. Trust us, this one is a keeper.
Melon and Mint Salad
from Susan Vaughn
1/2 large seedless watermelon, diced
1 cantaloupe, diced
1-2 tablespoons honey
1 handful fresh mint roughly chopped
1/2 cup toasted almonds
In a large serving bowl, toss the diced watermelon and cantaloupe together. Cut the lime in half and squeeze one half over the melon, then cut the other half into wedges for garnish. Drizzle the honey over the salad and give another toss. Sprinkle the fresh mint and almonds on top before serving, and garnish with fresh lime wedges.
