Sliced Melon Salad with Spicy Lime Dressing
Summer melon is delicious all by itself, but adding new flavors turns it from a simple snack into a salad ideal for entertaining. In this recipe cantaloupe is laced with red onions and drizzled with a sweet and spicy dressing made of lime and hot sauce.
3 cups fresh spinach leaves
½ of a medium cantaloupe, thinly sliced
½ small red onion, thinly sliced
3 tablespoons fresh lime juice*
1-2 teaspoons sriracha-style hot sauce
½ teaspoon sugar
On a serving platter, layer the spinach and the cantaloupe slices. Top with red onion slices.
In a small bowl, stir together the lime juice, hot sauce (depending on your preferred level of heat), and the sugar. Pour the dressing over the salad and serve.
*We recommend using lemons and limes from Paramount Citrus. They are consistently fresh and juicy and available at most major grocery, mass and club retailers.
