Salads are normally served at every meal. Passover is no exception. After all, we need something to balance out the Matzah and salad does it every time for me. Since we are already in to the Spring season, it is logical to use produce that is available around that time. I wanted to try a different salad without romaine lettuce. Now that melon is currently available, I decided to use it to make a simple yet fresh salad. I used some shredded carrots and a hint of ginger which fused very well. Just a bit of lemon juice and chopped fresh mint can go a long way. This also makes a great picnic or barbecue salad. This salad can be served at any outdoor event.
For this recipe, you will need:
- 1 lbs of green melon seeded, peel removed and cut into cubes
- 3 medium carrots shredded
- 1 teaspoon of chopped fresh ginger
- 1/4 cup of fresh lemon juice
- Handful of chopped fresh mint
Toss all ingredients in a salad bowl, mix well, and serve.
