1/2 cup of olive oil
1/2 cup of best white wine vinegar splash of champagne vinegar
1/2 teaspoon of Dijon mustard
3 tablespoons of minced fresh mint
1 tablespoon of finely minced parsley
big pinch of sugar
big pinch of salt
1 melon, peeled, seeded and chunked
1 cucumber, peeled and chunked
In a jar with a tight fitting lid, combine the dressing ingredients. Shake like crazy.
Let stand a room temp for 40 minutes to meld the flavors. Shake vigorously just before pouring just enough to moisten the chunks of melon and cukes. Chill and serve. Great with a grilled meat.
