Allow me to introduce you to the canary melon.
Canary melon is amazing. It’s sweet and juicy, like honeydew dipped in sugar crystals. You could eat it like candy for dessert. I discovered this delightful fruit by happenstance. I asked the grocer about it and he sliced one up on the spot to let me have a taste.
Right now canary melon is perfectly in season and pairs beautifully with other fruit-although you really don’t need to jazz it up with much of anything.
1 canary melon, cubed
2 cups watermelon, cubed
1 small bunch cilantro, finely chopped
1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
a pinch of course salt
Directions: In a bowl, combine the fruit.
Toss with the olive oil, salt and cilantro. The salt really brings out the flavor of the melon.
Serve chilled or at room temperature.
