Fresh Melon Salad

Another spring dish that I like to make is a fresh melon salad.

I cube or ball one cantalope and one honeydew melon. In a large bowl, I add the juice and zest of 1 lemon and 1 lime. Add 2 tbsp of finely chopped cilantro and 1 tbsp of sugar or 2 tbsp of sugar substitute. Stir, refrigerate for an hour and serve.

It is a light fresh salad. A chopped lemon basil works well in this dish also.
