A sweet, bright, vibrant summer salad that is fresh, refreshing and delicious! If you are feeling fancy, add some prosciutto and mozzarella to make a light lunch.
Orange Dew melon is a hybrid cross between a cantaloupe and a honeydew. It has a smooth, thin yellow skin and a creamy orange interior that is both juicy and sweet, just like cantaloupe. You can use any kind of melon that you prefer for the recipe. Honeydew melon and pomegranate are known for their anti-inflammatory properties due to the presence of antioxidants. Enjoy this beautiful salad to relieve inflammation!

  • 1 Orangedew melon, halved and pitted (or use your favourite melon)
  • 1 Large pomegranate
  • 1 tbsp Mint leaves, chopped
  • 1 Lime, zest and juice
  • Salt and pepper
  • 10 Caper berries
  • 30 g Baby arugula leaves
  1. Using a melon baller, scoop out rounds of melon. Cut the pomegranate into quarters and remove the seeds, leaving all the pith behind.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine the melon balls with the pomegranate arils, mint and baby arugula. Toss with the lime juice. Season to taste. Top the melon halves with the fruit salad and garnish with the caper berries.

I've never tried capers, I must admit, are they nice or nasty?

@DEZMONDIt's sour...but if my picky husband can eat them, you will have no problem at all either.

You have used so many different flavors in this salad. It must have a very unique and delicious taste. This is a very creative post Angie.

This looks beautiful and perfect for summer. I have to say I've never heard of orange do melon. What does it taste like?

I have never come across an "orange dew" melon and I'm not even sure they are available here in the UK, I'll have to investigate as it sounds lovely!

I also never realised that melon had anti-inflammatory properties, so this is definitely something I should eat more of, as I suffer with arthritis in my hands and feet!

Thanks for sharing and I hope that you enjoy your weekend! :)

I have gone absolutely crazy for melons this season! They are always so refreshing, and I just love them. This salad is absolutely beautiful! So colorful and pretty. Caper berries are an interesting addition. I don’t know that I have ever had caper berries with fruit before.

This looks so colourful and refreshing. ARe caper berries different from capers?

[Reply]
Angie's Recipes 7/8/21 10:38

@Nammi Capers are the unopened buds of the caper bush while caperberries are the fruit of the caper bush.

Awesome! Not only beautiful, but so helpful to fight inflammation that so many of us (me included) suffer from. Orangedew melon is new to me, but I'm sure it tastes great!
