Melon Salad with Mint and Lime

By June 9, 2016 December 19th, 2016 No Comments

-1/4 cup fresh lime juice
-3 cups peeled melon chopped into 3/4 inch pieces
-1 avocado chopped into 3/4 inch pieces
-1/4 cup lightly packed mint leaves (chopped if leaves are very large)
-Sriracha hot sauce to serve, if you’re looking for some spice
-2 teaspoons agave syrup (optional)
-Pinch of salt (optional)

Place the melon in a large bowl, add lime juice, and toss to coat. Let sit for about 5 minutes so the melon releases some of its juice and the flavors melt.
Toss in avocado and mint leaves. Taste for salt. You may want to adjust the sweetness and limey-ness as well. Serve immediately!

Melon salsa variation: Chop melon smaller, add 1/4 cup minced red onion, and substitute cilantro for the mint.

Note: Explore the variety of melons available to you–cantaloupe, honeydew, crenshaw, casaba, watermelon, etc.
