Recipe Notes

SERVE CHILLED

I like this salad best served chilled. Chill your melons ahead of time so they ll be cold if serving immediately. If you are not serving immediately toss together and place in fridge. 

CAN I MAKE THIS AHEAD OF TIME? 

I recommend only tossing the ingredients together the day of serving. You can make the dressing and slice the melons a day before, store in fridge. Then toss together right before serving. 

HOW TO PICK A FRESH ULTRA FLAVORFUL MELON

To make sure you're picking the best cantaloupe and honey dew melon smell the spot where it was detached from the rind. If the little circle at the bottom of the melon smells strongly of the melon you know you have a good one. If you can't smell anything it probably isn't the sweetest melon.
