shrimps & honeydew kitchen! kitchen!

A great summer salad or appetizer when the weather gets
a bit unbearable.
Shrimps and honeydew salad
This is my take of Lidia"s Italy "Coda di Gamberi con Melone".
I just love that woman! Her dishes are easy to make
and you could tweak it anyway you want and
make it your own. So the next few
postings are some of her dishes but with a twist.
What you need:
1 lb. shrimps - shells removed and cleaned
3-4 cups honeydew, peeled and diced or cubed to bite size (or use watermelon or cantaloupe)
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
Some freshly ground black pepper
A pinch of salt
Some fresh sprigs of mints
A scattering of feta cheese crumble
What to do next:
In a large pan bring to a boil with some chopped onions and bay leaves; boil for 20 minutes- then add the shrimps and cook for 3 minutes. Drain and let cool.
In a large bowl - gently combine diced melons, shrimps; teaspoon of chopped mints; pepper, and salt together. Add the fresh lemon juice and olive oil and toss gently. Sprinkle the crumbled feta cheese and garnish with a mint sprig.
