Authentic Simplicity's Melon Salad {SRC Orphan Rescue}

I'm on Orphan-detail again today for the Secret Recipe Club and I am so excited about having been introduced to Anne of Authentic Simplicity. Anne writes: "I'm just a simple stay-at-home-mom trying to keep it all together without losing my sanity... or going over budget." You go, girl. That was the toughest job I ever had. Now my boys are in school, so I'm back to work. But not much has changed with the keeping my sanity and staying within budget parts of my life though.

I loved what I made from her blog. She had a series of posts called 'Simple Sides' during August of 2011. All of those recipes looked amazing. Once it starts to warm up a bit, I will give her corn salad and her mango salad a try. Those both seem fabulous heralds to the summertime. I picked her Refreshing Melon Salad to serve as dessert tonight.

1 C coconut milk
juice and zest of 1 blood orange
5 C melon (I used a honeydew and a half of a cantaloupe)
1/4 C shredded coconut

Whisk together the coconut milk, blood orange juice and zest until well blended. Pour over melon and stir gently to combine. Refrigerate until ready to serve, at least an hour, or up to 3 hours. Top with coconut just before serving, if desired.


  1. Camilla, this looks good. Summer has kicked in hard and strong and this would be a perfect way to end a meal! Now to get my hands on a melon!

  2. Sometimes the simplest recipes are the best ones. This looks great!

  3. Yum! So simple and a perfect salad/treat! Thanks for filling in!

  4. Great save! This salad looks great!

  5. This sounds like a great and refreshing dessert for summer instead of something heavier. Great choice!
