Put to good use all of the in-season melon at hand this time of year with a delicious, savory and sweet salad. Use a small scoop or melon baller to form perfectly formed individual melon spheres. 

How to Make It

Step 1

Spread yogurt in a circle on a large serving plate.

Step 2

Combine parsley, vinegar, oil, honey, lime juice, 1/8 teaspoon salt, black pepper, and red pepper in a medium bowl, stirring with a whisk. Add all melon balls and radish to bowl; toss gently.

Step 3

Using a slotted spoon, mound melon mixture on top of yogurt (reserve vinegar mixture). Sprinkle evenly with bacon and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons reserved vinegar mixture; discard remaining vinegar mixture. Sprinkle evenly with basil leaves.

Seriously this is one of the best salads I've had in a while. We made it without the yogurt and it was phenomenal.
