Fruit salad never tasted so good!”
Melon means summer. So does fresh herbs. This Giada De Laurentiis recipe combines melon and mint to produce a summer fresh fruit salad that stands far above the rest.
Our garden is full of mint. It grows wild, and is a perennial that spreads, so each year our abundance increases. I used to fight it, but it turns out, most animals, especially deer, don’t like it’s fragrance and since I can use all the help I can get keeping the wildlife away from my plants, I just let it grow. I also found that it was much easier to find new recipes and ways to use the mint, than to try and fight its invasive ways. One of those recipes I found was this melon salad with mint.
This recipe is delicious, can be made in advance, and sure beats any fruit salad from a store! It is perfect for a Sunday brunch or as a light, refreshing, summer dessert.
