DIRECTIONS

  • Cut the melon in half, scoop out the seeds and cut the flesh into wedges.
  • Slice the fruit from the skin then cut the flesh into thick cubes. Keep the pieces generously sized.
  • Remove the rinds from the bacon. Grill the bacon - or fry it in a non-stick pan - until crisp, then drain on kitchen paper. Cut or break the bacon into pieces about 2 cm in length. Pull the leaves from the parsley and roughly chop.
  • Dissolve the honey in the lemon juice, season with a few grinds of black pepper and beat in the olive oil with a fork or small whisk.
  • Add the bacon and parsley to the melon. Pour over the dressing and gently toss, trying not to break up the melon. Divide between two plates and serve.
