Recipe Notes
  • Make ahead tip: cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days.
  • Melon selection and storage: Look for symmetrical unblemished melons, without flat sides, that have a creamy yellow soft on the bottom indicating ripeness. At 92% water, this fruit should feel heavy when you heft it. Precut melon flesh should be dense, firm and appear moist. Store in the refrigerator for up to a week or keep in a cool, dark spot.
  • Himalayan/ Sea salt is recommended as it is unprocessed and contains nature‚Äôs balanced minerals. Processed salt removes many necessary minerals and contains caking agents.

Enjoy this treat while summer is still here!
