From Cooking Light Magazine, anything with this summer favorite melon seems perfect for hot weather. For this recipe, you'll need the rind of a five-pound melon. Use the white inner rind, not the outer green part, which might have been waxed. Shred the rind with the large holes of a box grater, or cut it into chunks and shred it in a food processor. Serve the relish with ham or fish, or stir a little into steamed carrots.
