Melon Ball Salad

Ingredients

3 Melons, in three different colors
1/4 cup Sherry vinegar
4 Garlic cloves, crushed
1/4 teaspoon Salt
1/4 teaspoon Black pepper
2 tablespoons Tarragon (fresh), minced
2 tablespoons Chervil (fresh), minced
2 tablespoons Lemon basil, minced

Preparation

1
Cut melons of three different colors into melon balls and drain the balls in a colander. Save the juice to make sherbet.
2
Make a very strong salad dressing of chicken broth, sherry vinegar, lemon juice, crushed garlic, salt, pepper and minced fresh tarragon, chervil and lemon basil.
3
Dress the drained melon balls and let the dressing sink in for half an hour. Serve with sliced ham and toast.

NOTES:* Margaret's X-rated melon balls - I had a lettuce and tomato sandwich Saturday with mustard instead of mayonnaise. Better than I would have feared. But the big discovery of the week is Margaret's X-rated melon balls.

* In truth, I have to report that Margaret herself thought the garlic was too much; but I didn't.

* This recipe is not wholly unrelated to fruit curry, another godsend for the overplump.
