Nothing surpasses the fragrant, sweet flavor of a ripe melon, but finding a good one can be tricky. Most melons are at their best from early summer. For me, summertime is synonymous with light and refreshing dishes – and this Melon Balls with pepper and lime dressing fits the bill perfectly. I have made a simple fruit salad of watermelon, and cut the melon into balls using a melon scooper – then made it so much deliciously better by adding our homemade lime and pepper dressing!
11/2 teaspoon of lemon juice
3 to 4 black peppercorns, crushed
1 tablespoon roughly chopped fresh mint leaves
Black Salt to taste
Using a melon scooper, scoop out small balls from the watermelon. Discard all the seeds.
Keep the melon shell for serving.Give the melon shell a Zigzag edge using a small sharp knife.
Place the melon balls in the refrigerator to chill thoroughly.
Mix together, lemon juice, crushed peppercorn, black salt thoroughly.
pour over the melon balls and toss gently once or twice to mix.
Scoop into the melon shell and serve immediately.
Sprinkle the chopped mint leaves on top and serve.
