Savory Melon Recipes

I absolutely love pairing things that are unexpected. Melon is a summertime staple that may be more versatile than you might think. It’s not just for being in a fruit cup.

Salads are a given, but have you ever thought to incorporate melon into seafood dishes? Or on bruschetta with salty feta cheese? Melon and most cheeses definitely go hand in hand. Melon also does a fantastic job of being a rock star in fresh summer salsa, paired with grilled fish or shrimp…
