Mint melon salad. I mean what’s not to love about this salad ! Light , summery, bright, colourful and yes so juicy. Its simple, yet pretty, elegant and full of flavours. The watermelons and musk melons have started making sporadic appearence in the market, and though they may not have the same flavour as in during their peak season, they still tasted sweet and delicious. This is basically a light summer salad, the mint adds to the freshness and the blackpepper and honey dressing is a treat to the tastebuds. The salad itself is pretty simple and I paired it up with some mint chutney flavoured swirled whole wheat bread. Doesnt it make a pretty picture ? 🙂 The recipe for bread will come up soon, but only after this 30 days 30 salad series. So on day 24 is a very refreshing mint melon salad.
