Honey-Melon Salad with Basil
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 20 min.
My husband and I enjoyed this dressing with some of our homegrown watermelon. It was very refreshing and a nice change of pace from typical melon salads.
Really refreshing as a summer side or dessert- it was dessert for us as we ended our cookout with family. I used half watermelon and half cantaloupe because the honeydew at the market didn't seem ripe. I used half basil and half mint - winning combination. The dressing was a great light addition. I will serve this again. Oh, I did not add the cranberries because I used them all in the spinach salad.
This was a great combination of tangy and sweet. I think it would make a great dressing for a pasta salad, as well.
Always looking for a new fruit salad recipe and this one is a winner. Light and refreshing!
This is a delicious and refreshing recipe! I reduced the recipe to just serve two...the math was a bit tricky, but I managed!!! I used a combo of basil and mint; the herbs give the salad a nice pop of freshness. I also used some "hot" honey that I recently purchased. The taste of the spicy, sweet honey and the cool of the fruit was a tasty match. Will make this again.
