  • about 4 (1 to 2-inch thick) slices of melon (I used Summer Kiss)
  • about ¼ cup red onion, super thinly sliced
  • about 2 ounces Parmesan cheese, shaved
  • ¼ medium-sized avocado super thinly sliced
  • about 1½ tablespoons La Tourangelle Avocado Oil
  • 2 small Finger limes
  • salt


  • Remove the skin from the melon slices and then, holding them down on a clean, dry surface, use a vegetable peeler to "shave" them into super thin, ribbon-like slices. (You can also use a very sharp knife, if it's easier.) Add the melon to a medium-sized mixing bowl.
  • Add the onion, cheese and avocado slices.
  • Drizzle with the avocado oil, cut the Finger limes in half, horizontally, and then squeeze them on top. (Here's more about Finger limes.)
  • Sprinkle with a bit of sea salt and serve. (It's quick and easy to toss every together in the mixing bowl, but for a very pretty, composed finish, you can arrange the ingredients, as you prepare them, directly onto the serving plates.
