Melon Medley/Melon Salad

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

Ingredients :
Diced Watermelon-1 cup
Diced Cantaloupe or musk melon-1 cup
Chopped fresh Mint-10 to 12 leaves
Honey-2 tbsp
Salt-1/2 tsp
Freshly ground Pepper-1 tsp
Lemon juice-2 tsp

Procedure :

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 


  1. A refreshing salad. Mad something like this before. Try adding thinly sliced shallots next time.

  2. Very refreshing salad with my favourite melons:)

  3. looks like a feast for both eyes and tummy...
