Melon pasta salad (recipe in the comments)
Arugula salad with balsamic dressing
Oatmeal raisin cookies
This is a flier of a recipe. I saw it and thought the concept was pretty good - a use for very firm and not very sweet honey dew. Melons are from the same plant family as cucumbers and so have a similar flavor, especially when not very ripe. We were both very impressed with this and it makes a great addition to the pasta salad arsenal. It's truly different than any pasta salad we've made or even had before. I think next time we will try cutting the mozzarella and adding even more vegetables to make it truly a one dish meal. The original recipe is the one I've posted. Stay tuned for an updated version.
Chopping: Honey dew, tomatoes, mozzarella, basil, scallions
Time: 30 minutes
Make ahead: As this chills, it's great to make ahead. We did it last minute though and it was fine not thoroughly chilled.
