What kind of melon should I use for this recipe?

I like to use fresh honeydew melon because of the delicious fresh sweetness. But you can also swap the honeydew melon for your favourite type of melon if you prefer, or you just don’t have honeydew melon in the house. 

Other melons that works well in this recipe is:

  • Cantaloupe melon
  • Galia melon 
  • Casaba melon
  • Canary melons
  • Santa Claus melon (great for winter)

What type of herbs should I use in this salad?

You can use your favourite herbs. All fresh herbs can work in this recipe, but especially fresh mint leaves or fresh basil takes this salad to the next level. The mint adds extra freshness and a irresistible hint of summer holidays. Basil is always my go-to herb for everything. It just makes everything you cook taste better and of course it also makes this salad that much better. 

If you want a more exotic flavour in your salad you can opt for fresh cilantro. There’s no right or wrong, so just pick your favourite herbs and go for it.
