Melon ball fruit salad

Ever since I realized the weight loss properties of musk melons I started including them in my diet as much as possible during the entire summer. Generally musk melons are used to prepare refreshing juice or milkshake by adding milk & sugar (or condensed milk) but people, who are calorie conscious, would prefer to make guilt-free salad using musk melon to enjoy its health benefits completely.

Tips & tweaks:

  • You may also use any fleshy fruit like mango, passion fruit, etc. to make such balls.
  • You may take this salad even without any dressing, instead you can sprinkle a pinch of pepper/ cumin powder or chaat masala.
  • The dressing I used in here masks the raw smell of melons & papaya, however it does not overpower the sweetness of fruits.
