Prep Tip: Store ripe melons on the counter or in the fridge for up to two weeks. Refrigerate cut melons in a sealed container. Use within three days.
Change It Up: Experiment with different herbs and spices like ginger, basil, cinnamon, vanilla, lemongrass or mint. No lime? Drizzle with a bit of lemon. Make it into a savory summer supper by adding fresh mozzarella, basil, tomatoes and cucumbers and a dash of your favorite vinegar, we like balsamic.
Nutrition Tip: Melons are a good source of carotenoids. Carotenoids are plant pigments that function like antioxidants by protecting the body from free radicals and may help protect against some diseases.
