Market Watch: Casaba Melon by Dana Angelo White in Farmers' Market Finds, August 12, 2010
This dazzling lemon-yellow melon is new to my kitchen. After a taste, I am a loyal fan.
A relative of cantaloupe, casaba tastes similar, but not quite as sweet. One cup has less than 50 calories, 2 grams of fiber and more than 60 percent of your daily dose of vitamin C. Add to a fresh salad, wrap with thin slices of salty prosciutto, or for our frozen treats week, make a cool and refreshing batch of melon sorbet.
