Great with a grilled meat, especially lamb.


  • ½ cup of extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ cup of best white wine vinegar (I use rice vinegar or white balsamic)
  • ½ teaspoon of dijon style mustard
  • 3 tablespoons of finely minced fresh mint
  • 1 tablespoon of finely minced parsley
  • big pinch of sugar
  • big pinch of salt
  • 23 cups mixed honeydew, cantaloupe, and watermelon, peeled, seeded, and diced
  • 2 cups mixed greens
  • 1 English cucumber, diced


  1. In a jar with a tight fitting lid, combine the dressing ingredients. Shake like crazy. Let stand a room temp for 40 minutes to meld the flavors.
  2. Meanwhile, combine the melon, greens, and cucumber in a large bowl.
  3. Shake the dressing vigorously before pouring just enough to moisten the chunks of melon, greens, and cucumbers.
  4. Serve.
