Tomato & Melon

September 13, 2007

A few weeks ago I suggested in the Grilled Peaches post that this has been a rough year for melons.  Apparently, the Cucurbitaceae family didn’t get my message, because they’ve been coming in pretty hot lately.  Last week brought us a great seedless watermelon, and just now a ridiculously good cantaloupe passed through my kitchen.

This particular melon came from Durst Farms in the Capay Valley, and damn was it good.  Hopefully, the second half of the season will continue like this.  Here’s a simple little late night snack I made while slicing fruit for tomorrow’s lunch. 

It’s simply chunks of melon, sliced tomatoes (from my neighbor’s vines…) a bit of nice and fruity Turkish oilve oil, fleur de sel and just a teeny sprinkling of cayenne.
