Melon with Tajin & Mint

This is one of my favorite simple appetizers. It’s something you can throw together quickly when guests are coming over, but it feels a little different and festive. We have been getting the best cantaloupe in our weekly farm box — a sweet melon makes this a late summer treat. It’s great as an appetizer before dinner with drinks.

Tajin is a powdered seasoning mixture that can be found either in your produce department or on the spice aisle. It’s a little citrusy, a little salty and just slightly spicy. So good with a sweet melon and fresh mint!

Melon with Tajin & Mint

1 cantaloupe

a few pinches of Tajin seasoning

2 sprigs of fresh mint

Halve the melon, remove seeds, then cut into wedges. Using a small knife, slice the rind off each wedge and then slice into cubes, leaving the melon to sit on the rind. Arrange the melon on a platter then sprinkle with Tajin and finely chopped fresh mint leaves (stems removed). Serve with toothpicks and enjoy!
