Rinse your melon if it's farm fresh. I cut my melon in half because I was only going to use half for my recipe. Clean the seeds out.
Cut off the end. Lay it on your cutting board, flat side down. Start to slice the rind off, with straight downward cuts.
Ta-da! Easy peasy. If there are little bits of rind, just cut them off.
Chop it up into cubes for a salad, or slices just to eat by themselves.
This half of my melon I used for the following recipe!
Cantaloupe and Cucumber Salad with Mint
2 cups of cubed Cantaloupe
1 cup of seeded and cubed Cucumber
1/4 cup of sliced Red Onion
1 tsp of mint Chiffinade
Juice of 1/2 a Lemon
1 tsp of Lemon Zest
1/2 cup of Greek Yogurt
2 Tbl of Mayonnaise
1 tsp Wild Honey
Stir together all your dressing ingredients in a bowl and pour it in a larger bowl with your fruit, cucumber, and onions. Mix gently to coat. Sprinkle with mint. Serve cooled, the same day.
