MELON BALL SALAD
Margaret's X-rated melon balls
I had a lettuce and tomato sandwich Saturday with mustard instead
of mayonnaise. Better than I would have feared. But the big discovery
of the week is Margaret's X-rated melon balls.
- 3 melons,
in three different colors
- 1/3 cup chicken broth
- 1/4 cup sherry vinegar
- 1/3 cup lemon juice
- 4 garlic cloves,
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
- 2 Tbsp fresh tarragon,
- 2 Tbsp fresh chervil,
- 2 Tbsp lemon basil,
Cut melons of three different colors into melon balls and drain the
balls in a colander. Save the juice to make sherbet.
Make a very strong salad dressing
of chicken broth, sherry vinegar, lemon juice, crushed garlic, salt,
pepper, and minced fresh tarragon, chervil, and lemon basil.
the drained melon balls and let the dressing sink in for half an hour.
Serve with sliced ham and toast.
In truth, I have to report that
Margaret herself thought the garlic was too much; but I didn't.
This recipe is not wholly unrelated to fruit curry, another godsend
for the overplump.
15 minutes preparation, 30 minutes waiting.
no need to measure.
