Melon & Cumber salad with Fig Vinaigrette

This was a lovely little something fresh to go with our Easter dinner yesterday. Great cheese, homemade bread, dessert with a humble story to come and, of course, a honey glazed spiral cut smoked ham. Back to the salad though…


  • 2 English cucumbers
  • 1 Musk melon
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 part fig vinegar
  • 1 part balsamic vinegar
  • 2 parts really good olive oil
  • 2 tbsp. lemon juice
  • Goat cheese
  • Mint


  1. Trim the skin of the English cucumbers and slice into ¼ inch rounds.
  2. Using a scoop, ball a musk melon.
  3. Add lemon zest.
  4. Drizzle the dressing all around and toss gently.
  5. Crumble goat cheese all around and garnish with chopped mint.
