Avocado  Melon Salad Recipe

Ingredients:
4 cups cubed watermelon, honeydew,
cantaloupe or any melon variety
2 avocados
Juice from 1 lime
¼ tsp sea salt
1 pinch fresh cracked pepper
1 pinch Aleppo chili flakes
1 handful fresh cilantro, trimmed and washed

Directions:

  • If using watermelon, simply cube and set aside.
  • If using a melon, cut it in half and scoop out the innards with a large spoon.
  • Cut the halves into 1-inch wide strips, remove the rind and cut into 1-inch cubes.
  • Cut your avocados in half and remove the pit by hitting it with a sharp knife and then twisting it out.
  • Gently remove the peel and cut into 1-inch cubes.
  • To assemble, mix melon and avocado cubes together with remaining ingredients in a large serving bowl.
  • Another serving option is to arrange the cubes in a random checkerboard pattern on a large rectangular platter. Drizzle with lime juice and sprinkle with remaining ingredients.
