Nutritional values

In this salad, vitamins A and C provide tons of antioxidants, which can help prevent damage from sun rays, especially in summer months. 

To see if your melon is ripe, sniff at the stem base of the melon before buying. If you smell a fruity aroma, then it is ripe. Zero fragrance, on the other hand, means that the fruit is not yet ripe and will have a bland taste.
