Hints & Tips

No salad dressing or salt is required as the light freshness is perfect as is.
Don't worry too much about the melon pips; just remove any obvious easy ones.
If you slice the melon off a whole fruit, keep the skin intact when removing the flesh, set aside upside down for excess juices to drain out, and then use it as a salad bowl!
