Mixed Melon Salad with Ricotta Salata, Chili Pepper, Lime and Mint


A Note from Feedfeed

This is the only salad you need for your summer entertaining needs! Juicy summer melons are paired with salty ricotta salata, spicy chilis, fresh lime juice and a heavy hand of mint. If you can’t find ricotta salata, any salty, crumbly cheese will do! Salads don’t get much more refreshing or easy than this one!
