Cucamelon Radish Salad with Cilantro Lime Dressing

Cook’s Note and About the Recipe:

About Cucamelons:

Some people called them mouse melons, Mexican sour gherkins, Mexican miniature watermelons, Mexican sour cucumbers, and pepquinos.  The plant is native to Mexico and Central America.  It is sometimes called a savory fruit, resembling a tiny watermelon. They are about the size of grapes and taste a little like a cucumber, lime or fava bean.

They are used in stir-fries, salads, can be pickled, or just enjoyed as a raw snack. Some people like to add them to salsas or use them like olives for drinks.  I loved combining them with radishes for a bright mini salad.  If you see them in your market, do give them a try.  They are strangely addictive.
