Melon Salad With Mint And Buddha’s Hand

After being stripped off all its zest for cupcakes and crème brûlée, I was left with a ‘naked’ Buddha’s Hand. As light and refreshing it was, I made a simple summer salad by combining it with mint and melon. Its an ageless combination, but in this salad, the lemon pieces can be bitten into, rather than tasting faintly in the background.

Melon Salad With Mint And Buddha’s Hand

Talking about background and props, this melon salad is plated on a beautiful Italian earthenware, gifted by a beloved friend of mine. Gorgeous, exquisite and intricately crafted, it made my heart skip a beat when I opened the package. In an ocean of anonymity, such kinships are one of the things I cherish about blogging. My heartfelt thanks, dear friend.

Ingredients

Honeydew melon – 2 cups, cubed
Buddha’s Hand citron – ½ cup, small dice
Strawberries – ½ cup, hulled
Mint – ½ cup, minced
Salt
Pepper

Method

Mix all the ingredients and let sit for 15 minutes before serving. Serve at room temperature.

Melon Salad With Mint And Buddha’s Hand

When I searched the internet for recipes with Buddha’s Hand citron, there were not many, unfortunately. Some even recommended using it as a centerpiece in coffee tables, rather than cooking with it. I was happy that I could enjoy this amazing fruit in more than one dishes, and not as an eye candy. This final installment of 1-in-3 – Buddha’s Hand Citron goes to Michelle at The Accidental Scientist, who is hosting HOTM – Herbs.
