This Melon Salad with Chile & Lime at Smitten Kitchen is wonderful for summer (I love the generous use of mint!) and has some surprise ingredients that make it better than average: lime juice, chile flakes & pepitas (!). I just made the classic prosciutto and melon dish and essentially used this recipe but left out the pepitas.  It’s a lovely recipe for summer and much more exciting than the typical fruit salad.  Enjoy. And if you love the summer melons and want to incorporate them into your dessert, check out this Watermelon Granita Recipe I posted on the blog recently.
