Strawberry and Melon Dessert Salad
Refreshing melon pieces and aromatic strawberries combine to make a fruit salad that is extremely rich in vitamins and minerals, just as the South of France loves it. The orange-red aroma bomb brings a lot of potassium and balances the body's fluid balance, especially on hot days.
The Charentais melon is the smallest in the range of sugar melons and has an intense, sweet aroma. if you don't get Charentais, simply switch to another aromatic variety, such as Galia, Cantaloupe or Futuromelon.
