Triple-Melon Fruit Salad

PREVIOUS: Cucumber Salad NEXT: Summer Stone Fruit Salad

Ingredients (7)

  • 3 pounds seedless watermelon, cut into 1-inch cubes (about 5 to 6 cups)
  • 2 pounds cantaloupe, cut into 1-inch cubes (about 3 to 4 cups)
  • 2 pounds honeydew melon, cut into 1-inch cubes (about 3 to 4 cups)
  • 2 tablespoons coarsely chopped fresh mint leaves
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lime juice, plus more as needed
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar, plus more as needed
  • Pinch kosher salt


While classic potato and macaroni salads always have their place at a picnic, a refreshing fruit salad is welcome at any gathering. A touch of fresh mint and lime juice perks up this colorful three-melon combination.


Place all of the ingredients in a large bowl and gently mix to combine. Taste and add more lime juice or sugar as needed. Serve immediately or chill in the refrigerator for up to 4 hours before serving.
