Fresh Honeydew with Cinnamon Cottage Cheese

Jamie says:  When fruit’s on sale, it usually means it’s delicious.  That’s because it’s usually in season and the flavors are at their peak.  I bought a honeydew melon last week and let it ripen on the counter.  (According to the CDC, honeydews are at their peak from June through October.)  Today, I got out the big knife and wooden cutting board and went at it.  I sampled it along the way.  The taste was so delicious, I didn’t want to mask it with much, so I enjoyed the fresh with just two other ingredients.

Fresh Honeydew with Cinnamon Cottage Cheese

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup honeydew melon, chopped
  • 4 oz container 2% cottage cheese with live and active cultures (Breakstone’s)
  • 1/8 tsp ground cinnamon

Directions:

  1. Top honeydew with cottage cheese and cinnamon.  Enjoy!
Serves: 1
The honeydew melon was probably one of the best I’ve ever had.  It was so juicy and flavorful and paired well with the more plain and less moist cottage cheese.  The cinnamon amplified the sweetness of the melon.  Awesome!
  • Nutrition note:  By enjoying 1 cup of diced melon, you are meeting about 50% of the daily recommendation for vitamin C (CDC).
