My Goals and Discoveries
Perfectly sweet melon
Because a melon’s sweetness can vary depending on how ripe it was when picked, the salads get sweetened with sugar or honey to taste.
Concentrated dressings that cling
Assertive dressings made with plenty of salty, pungent, and acidic ingredients balance the melons' high water content. Lots of chopped nuts, seeds, and herbs cling to the melon and hold on to the dressing.
Big pieces/big contrast
Leaving the melon in large pieces accentuates the contrast between the well-seasoned exterior and the sweet interior.
