Sweet, flavorful melons are the stuff summer dreams are made of, and this simple preparation celebrates their arrival. Seek out a variety of locally grown melons to get the most out of this refreshing salad.
What to buy: We used a white Muscat, a sweet dessert wine made from fragrant Muscat grapes, in this recipe. However, various sweet dessert wines such as Sauternes will work too. Just be sure to stick to white, because a dark wine will turn the fruit gray.
