Summer Melon Salad


lime & maple syrup dressing

Do you ever look at your food and think, “this must be delicious because it looks so good?”  Well, that’s how I felt about this summer melon salad, when it was served up recently.  It just looks like summer in a bowl, and it looks so good it’s almost a shame to dig in, but you’ll want to, believe me!

This time of year, there are always plenty of melons available, and this recipe has the perfect balance of flavours and is super easy to make. Make ahead of time, pop it in the fridge and its ready when you are!
