Title: Melon ball salad
Categories: Salads, Usenet
Yield: 4 Servings
3 Melons, in three
1/3 c Chicken broth
1/4 c Sherry vinegar
1/3 c Lemon juice
4 Garlic cloves, crushed
1/4 t Salt
1/4 t Black pepper
2 T Tarragon (fresh),
2 T Chervil (fresh),
2 T Lemon basil, minced
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.
Dress the drained melon balls and let the dressing sink in for half an
hour. Serve with sliced ham and toast.
* 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. Yield: Serves 4.
* 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.
