  • 1 medium-large honeydew melon
  • 1/3 cup dried cranberries (dried cherries also work)
  • 1/4 cup shelled pistachio nuts, lightly toasted
  • Shaved fresh Parmesan cheese



  • Combine all dressing ingredients and whisk together well. Set aside.
  • Cut honeydew, removing skin and seeds. Cut honeydew flesh into small chunks. Refrigerate for 2 hours.
  • Drain juices from cut honeydew. Gently mix with dried cranberries and dressing.
  • Top with pistachios and shaved Parmesan cheese. Serve immediately.


In Your Kitchen:

Try subbing cantaloupe melon, or for something completely different, try apples or pears.
Use different nuts like cashews or almonds.
For a stronger cheese flavor, try Pecorino-Romano.
