About this recipe

This savory take on a melon salad combines cantaloupe and honeydew with crunchy radishes, sweet figs, and the herbal homerun of Thai basil. The small, sturdy leaves of Thai basil are less soft and floppy than sweet basil, with a spicy-anise flavor that stands up to a creamy mustard-yogurt dressing. If it’s flowering, all the better — use those blossoms, too.

The Benefits

This crunchy, juicy salad bowl is high in vitamins (including folate), and fiber! Melons, particularly honeydew and cantaloupe are a good source of vitamin C and beta-carotene. Radishes are high in antioxidants, vitamin C, and folate. Add yogurt to the mix and you have a splash of protein and probiotic goodness, great for digestive health and overall immunity.
