When the heat is trying cool foods, raw foods are preferable and this is lovely and cooling on a toothpick – take a small piece of watermelon, a raspberry, half or quarter of a strawberry and a blueberry – put out on a plate.
Tricolor Melon Salad (serves 4)
A summer fruit salad that is really light and refreshing and captures the essence of summer. The lime juice adds an extra dimension and is not sharp at all as it blends with the melon juices. Serve for lunch or dinner, take along to a picnic and I also eat it for breakfast.
Just take an equal amount of ripe watermelon, cantaloupe and honeydew melons and chop into small chunks.
Pour over juice of 1/2 a lime and mix well together.
Cover and let stand for a while so flavor develops.
