Zing into summer with this must eat! Simple, and rewarding. Just sharing the love of dressing up a simple melon lunch or supper “side”. Using my Beelicious honey from Judy and Matt again. Yum to the tum. Be on the lookout later this week for a savory mahi dish to pair with this melon salad…and the perfect refreshing Limoncello cocktail for pairing.Zest of 1 lemon
Juice of 1 lemon
1 Tbs dry sherry
1 Tbs honey
1/8 t kosher salt
1/4 t ground pepper
2 Tbs extra virgin olive oil
3 Tbs fresh torn mint
In medium bowl whisk together lemon zest, lemon juice, sherry, honey, salt, and pepper.
Slowly add olive oil, whisking until combined.
Cut melons in half and remove seeds.
Slice into 2 inch wide wedges.
Using a mandolin cut melons into ribbons.
Add melon ribbons to dressing and toss to coat.
Place on plate.
Sprinkle with mint.
Of course, if you don’t have a mandolin, you can cube the melon or use a melon baller to shape into balls.
