When I think of melon recipes the first things that comes to mind are drinks and smoothies. That said, I wanted to find something a little different and was happy to find this creamy salad.

serves 4-6


Vinaigrette

2 tablespoons lemon juice

3 Tablespoons Olive oil

1 teaspoon honey

1 tsp champagne vinegar

1 Tablespoon heavy cream

Salt and lots of pepper



1/2 head red lettuce, washed and torn into bite-size pieces

1/2 small tuscan melon peeled, seeded and cubed or sliced

1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced

5-7 fresh, ripe figs quartered

feta

Combine the ingredients for the vinaigrette in a small bowl and whisk to combine. Taste and adjust the seasonings remembering that the melon and figs are both sweet so you want the vinaigrette to be quite bright and pop-y.

Toss the melon, lettuce and red onion in a bowl along with the vinaigrette.

Put the dressed greens on a platter and finish with the fresh figs along with some crumbled feta.

Enjoy immediately.

I absolutely adore figs in any forms, especially when there is saltines there also.
I think figs are the kind of fruit you would find in the bible describing a sin, or something :)
