This one of my favorite recipe to serve at Thanksgiving and Christmas--I alway serve it in the summertime when the melons are in, but found it make a nice crisp salad at the holiday table too! Crunchy and sweet and a little tart at the same time..
Mix together the vinegar,water, sugar and poppy seeds(may use nuts instead as desired)in a bowl and season with salt and pepper to taste. Stir in the chopped scallions.
Place the melon balls and cucumber in a large bowl and pour the marinade over top evenly. Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate a few hours before serving. Toss gently before serving.If you like toss in a few chopped raw cranberries too.
