Summer Melon and Hot Pepper Salad

Serves 6

This recipe is fantastic with most seafood. We recommend Scallops, Carolina Shrimp or Grilled Snapper.

  • ½ Ward Bros. Farm organic watermelon, seeded and diced
  • 3 Ward Bros. Farm organic Sprite Melons, seeded and diced
  • 1 small red onion, diced
  • 5 organic hot wax peppers, seeded and diced*
  • 3 scallions, chopped
  • 2 red or green organic bell peppers, seeded and diced
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 3 tbs. Extra virgin olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tbs. fresh cilantro, chopped

Prepare all ingredients as noted and combine. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper and refrigerate for at least one hour. Toss and serve. May be made 3-4 hours ahead.

For an unusual but amazing presentation cut sprite melons in half, scoop out seeds and serve relish/ salad right in the hollow of the melon
Serving suggestion. Use as relish or accompaniment for grilled white fish, seared or grilled scallops and or shrimp. Scale up proportionately for more servings.

* May substitute cayenne or jalapeno or any other pepper depending on your taste for heat.
