Fresh Cherry Salad with Melon and Mint

Fresh-cherry-saladFresh Cherry Salad with Melon and Mint

Sweet, fresh cherries make this light, early summer salad equally perfect for a buffet lunch or part of a simple family meal. If possible, use a cherry pitter so cherries can be left whole.

Ingredients

1/4 honeydew melon, seeds and skin removed, and cut into 1/2″ cubes
1/4 cup minced fresh mint plus mint sprigs for garnish
2 tablespoons light honey
1 1/2 cups pitted fresh cherries
lemon juice
juice of 2 limes

Directions

Put the cantaloupe, honeydew melon, and minced fresh mint in a bowl and turn several times. Put the honey in a bowl with the lemon juice and stir until the honey dissolves, a minute or two. Pour this over the melons and turn several times. Add the cherries, turning them in as well. Pour the lime juice over all, garnish with mint sprigs and serve.
