Honeydew and Poblano Salad with Smoked Salt and Mint

Honeydew and Poblano Salad with Smoked Salt and Mint

Serves 4 to 6

This melon salad makes a terrific side or starter for a warm-weather meal. Make an even smokier version of this salad by first charring the poblano whole on the grill or over the flame of a gas burner before removing the stem and seeds.

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 poblano pepper, seeded and diced*
  • 1/2 honeydew melon, peeled, seeded and diced (about 5 cups)
  • 2 small pickling (Kirby) cucumbers, diced
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh mint
  • 1/4 teaspoon smoked sea salt

* If poblano peppers aren't available, substitute a small green bell pepper and a pinch of cayenne.
