The sun comes out and San Franciscans lose their ish. Seriously. When the thermometer creeps above 67 people sing and frolic in the streets.

That being said, I am not above this behavior. We’ve had some beautiful days weeks past (we even reached EIGHTY! WOO!) which inspired the return of this quick and fresh lemon mint melon salad to enjoy in the sun.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I threw this together for Easter Sunday and had everybody over for brunch out back. Melon, mint, lemon, and love. I want it every warm day.

 

 

 

 

 

Cooling watermelon and honeydew Parisiennes are tossed with a sweet simple syrup, lemon, and mint dressing.

 

 

 

 

 

Ingredients
1 small watermelon
1/2 small honeydew
1/4 c. sugar
Zest and juice of 1 lemon
2 T chopped mint
1/4 c. boiling water

Tools
Large Parisienne scoop (melon baller)

Directions
Using your large parisienne scoop,  spoon out uniform pearls from watermelon and honeydew. Prepare your dressing by dissolving sugar in boiling water to make a simple syrup. Add lemon juice, zest, and mint to simple syrup. Drain melon juice from your bowl that has accumulated. Toss melon parisiennes with dressing. Serve and enjoy! So simple!

And when you’re done, make sure to tell the sun to show itself in SF more often so we can eat this frequently. Thanks.
