  1. Cut the melons in half and with a small ball-maker we make little balls of melon.

  2. Peel the kiwis and we make as many balls as we could from each one.

  3. Prepare the vinaigrette by mixing the oil, balsamic vinegar, honey and salt and shaking until all ingredients have emulsified

  4. In a bowl we mix the lettuces, the fruit balls, the seeds and the vinaigrette.

  5. Decorate with a few balls of melon and kiwi above and add a few seeds on the top.

How to make melon Balls

Wash the melon, knife, and melon baller. Scrub the whole melon with a clean brush under cool, running water. If you skip this step, bacteria on the rind can easily contaminate the melon flesh during slicing. Wash the knife and melon baller in hot, soapy water.

Cut the melon in half and remove the seeds. Leaving it in two halves provides a bowl to catch the juice. That said, it's not a big deal if you've already cut it into quarters or slices. If your melon has a center full of seed pulp, scoop this out with a large spoon and discard it.

Sink the baller fully into the flesh. Hold the scoop flat against the melon, or at a slight angle. Press down into the melon until the entire scoop has sunk into the flesh. If a portion of the scoop is above the melon level, you'll end up with irregular chunks instead of spheres.

Rotate the baller 180 degrees. Turn the melon baller 180º, until the scoop is facing you. There should be a perfect ball of melon sitting in the scoop.

  • If your melon balls still aren't satisfactory, rotate two full rotations before you remove the scoop.[6]

  • If you're using a baller with a plastic scoop or handle, don't apply too much force. These may break if used on dense fruits.
