Melon & cucumber ribbons salad

Now we're talking refreshing! Just what this August weather needs! I was inspired to make this salad after a trip to LA, to one of the most amazing restaurants I've ever been to: Bestia. We were lucky enough to find a reservation on a Saturday night and we had booked it just the night before! This restaurant is crazy popular so the only time we could find a table was at 11:00pm at night (way too late for me to eat - but trust me - this restaurant is so worth it!)

This is my recreation of one of the best appetizer dishes they served- the melon cucumber salad.

All you need is:

- Gem lettuce

- Cucumbers (use a ribbon slices to chop the cucumbers into ribbons)

- Orange dew melon

- Pumpkin seeds

- Basil leaves

Simply dress those up in a light lemon and olive oil dressing (add a pinch of honey for extra sweetness) and you've got yourself a pool of a yummy salad to dive into!
