Fresh Mint and Cilantro Melon Salad

Rating: 4.5 stars 43
All the fresh greens of the herbs and melon of this easy side dish are refreshing to both the eye and the palate! The melon can be chopped bite-sized to be a salad or side, or smaller to be used as a relish or condiment. This dish is also great for a change of pace on the brunch buffet! This works well also with Crenshaw melon.

Mint Chutney

Rating: 4.5 stars 50
I had searched everywhere for this recipe. The stars aligned one day and I not only found a fabulous house to rent, but a landlord who knew how to make Mint Chutney! This is Roselyns recipe.

Mint Juleps

Rating: 4.5 stars 78
Sit on the front porch in your rocking chair on a sultry afternoon and sip on one or two of these. The proper way to serve a mint julep is in a frozen silver goblet, but you can use glasses instead - just use the most elegant ones you have! You can make the syrup ahead of time and store it in the refrigerator for whenever the julep mood strikes you.

Sumac is available at Middle Eastern food stores. It may be left out of this salad, but the flavor to me is important to the overall taste of fatoosh.
