Melon ball fruit salad

Ever since I realized the weight loss properties of musk melons I started including them in my diet as much as possible during the entire summer. Also I stopped making musk melon juice with added sugar for myself but started taking salads to enjoy its health benefits completely.

Fruits: I have chosen the fruits musk melon, water melon & papaya, that aid in weight loss and make one feels filling. I used few grapes for adding color into the salad.

  1. Water melon (tharpoosani)
  2. Musk melon (kirni pazham)
  3. Papaya (pappali)
  4. Grapes

Dressing:

  1. Honey
  2. One or two drops of lemon juice (adequate for the quantity of fruit salad shown here)
  3. Finely chopped mint leaves

Fruit salad:

  • Scoop out fruits using a measuring spoon as shown below.
  • Combine all the fruits together in a mixing bowl.
  • In a bowl, whisk honey & lemon juice together and add chopped mint leaves.
  • Pour over the fruit balls to coat them.
  • Serve chilled or at room temperature.

Tips & tweaks:

  • You may also use any fleshy fruit like mango, passion fruit, etc. to make such balls.
  • You may take this salad even without any dressing, instead you can sprinkle a pinch of pepper/ cumin powder or chaat masala.
  • The dressing I used in here masks the raw smell of melons & papaya, however it does not overpower the sweetness of fruits.
