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
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
Cut melons in half. Using a melon baller, scoop flesh into balls and transfer to a large serving bowl.
Toss melon with mint and cilantro.
In a small bowl, whisk together lime juice, honey and cayenne. Drizzle over melon and toss to coat.
Garnish with coconut and pistachios and serve.
