I was pleasantly surprised when I first tried melon and zaatar together. The tangy, herbal nuttiness of the zaatar balances beautifully with the sweet juicy flavours of the melon. A match made in heaven!


This salad is super simple and uses very few ingredients, so it's perfect for a summer's lunch or served as a side for summer barbecues and entertaining friends.


Melon, a.k.a. Cantaloupe, Rockmelon, Sweet Melon, or Spanspek, as we like to call it in South Africa!


For the recipe, I'll let you improvise on the quantities depending on the size salad you're making.
