The Mercury is on the rising and there are no words to describe the intense heat here in Chennai and all I want is to bite in to the cool and juicy water melon or musk melon or cantaloupe .I eat both fruits separately and suddenly thought of making a salad using both.It is very easy to make and has a burst of freshness of mint.You can also add yellow water melon for a more colourful look.
Preparation time:10 minutes
Diced Watermelon-1 cup
Diced Cantaloupe or musk melon-1 cup
Chopped fresh Mint-10 to 12 leaves
Freshly ground Pepper-1 tsp
Lemon juice-2 tsp
1.In a mixing bowl , mix all the above ingredients together except salt.
2.Add salt just before serving and toss well to mix it(Otherwise melons may turn watery).
3. Refreshing melon salad is ready. You can refrigerate the salad and serve it cold
