So, what can I do with it? FreshDirect sent me one for free, but it's probably my least favorite fruit. I can't stand eating it on its own. Any recipes to make it more palatable?
Since you got it free, might you consider giving it away to a friend or co-worker?
I personally pretty much do not like fruit as I dislike that taste of sweet. I did find that something salty, if not just plain old sprinkled on salt, was good with melon.
Do you make smoothies? Blend it with a fruit you do like?
I've made a curried rice salad with canteloupe in the past.
Not this particular recipe, but pretty much the same idea.
Also found this rice salad recipe: http://www.cookingindex.com/recipes/6...
Also find lime makes canteloupe and honeydew more palatable.
I make a cantalope sorbet with orange zest and the juice from the orange. If you want to add vodka to the mix that could be fun.
Soften 8 oz cream cheese, mix well with one jar marshmallow fluff.
Smear all over each piece of melon.
How's that sound?
