I originally shared this recipe on August 8, 2014. I have updated the images and some of the text today.

I’m sure you’ve heard of the acronym KISS… Keep it simple, stupid. Well, I had to keep reminding myself of this while I was working on this recipe.  I had to almost literally slap my own hand as I reached for just one more ingredient to add to this salad.

But I’m telling you right now I’m so happy that I resisted. This melon and mint salad is perfect. The honey and lemon juice create an amazingly light, sweet and tart dressing that pairs so well with the melon.  Then the mint adds just the right amount of zing, freshness, color and texture. See perfect!!

This salad would be absolutely lovely served at your next brunch.  It would also be a great ending to a fun cook-out on a warm summer night.

I did decide to use a mix of melons (watermelon, cantaloupe and honey dew) because I thought the different colors would make it even prettier. And I wasn’t wrong. After I tossed it and put it in the bowl it was a thing of glory.  Simple, stunning and yummy. What more can you ask for?

This melon and mint salad was a great reminder for me that when you’re making food with fresh local ingredients at their peak of freshness you don’t need to over complicate things.  Let them shine in their simplicity.  Just sit back and KISS!
