Cool off on a warm day with ripe melon salad in a light sweetened citrus dressing that can served as an easy side dish or appetizer. This recipe used a mix of three different melons, but you could use whatever combination you like or stick to just one variety. Look for watermelons that have a yellow spot on the bottom on the bottom, which notes that it ripened on the vine in the field instead of being plucked too early. But avoid those with multiple brown or soft spots, cracks, or other signs of damage. Both honeydew and cantaloupe should smell fragrant, particularly at the stem, when it is ripe.
