Melon and Mint Salad

Hey guys! Hope you have some fun plans for July 4th! I'm still catching up on work from our recent travel, but definitely taking a break to hangout by the pool with friends and I will most definitely be making this melon and mint salad for the second time this week. Usually I get bored making the same recipe again within a week or two of eating it, but not when summer melon is at it's peak ripeness. I just can't get enough melon in the summer! 

Melon and Mint Salad

Serves 8


  • 1 medium cantaloupe

  • 1 medium watermelon

  • 2 tablespoons chopped mint

  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro

  • 1/2 lime, juiced

  • 1 teaspoon honey

  • 1-2 pinches cayenne

  • 1 tablespoon chopped pistachios, for garnish

  • 1 tablespoon shredded coconut


  1. Cut melons in half. Using a melon baller, scoop flesh into balls and transfer to a large serving bowl.

  2. Toss melon with mint and cilantro.

  3. In a small bowl, whisk together lime juice, honey and cayenne. Drizzle over melon and toss to coat.

  4. Garnish with coconut and pistachios and serve.
