Melon 5 Ways
Sip on a combo of watermelon, honeydew, creamy yogurt and some zip from fresh lime. This smoothie makes a quick and light breakfast or a satisfying mid-afternoon snack.
Salty prosciutto and juicy melon are a classic combination. Serve in cute little packages secured with fresh chives – elegant and simple party food.
A quick sear on the grill caramelizes the sugars in watermelon. Team it up with goat cheese, greens, and syrupy reduced balsamic vinegar. That’s my kind of summer salad!
Fresh melon, melon liqueur and vodka make a serious summer cocktail. Freeze melon balls ahead of time to keep your drink extra frosty.
Cool cantaloupe helps put out the fire from red chiles in this fresh and light seafood dish.
