Melon is a wonderful fruit, it is low in calories and perfectly hydrates the body. It is rich in vitamins and minerals. The best melon is the ripe melon. When choosing a melon in the store, pay attention to the peel so that there are no stains on it. Smell the fruit by the stalk, when ripe it gives off a sweet, characteristic smell. However, if we do not have much choice, because we are not in sunny Italy, for example, choose the healthiest fruit and put it on the windowsill for a few days, it should mature.
Melon prepared according to this recipe can be eaten as a snack or dessert. It tastes great with cream or vanilla ice cream. It can also be an addition to a salad, it goes perfectly with arugula.
