Central Coast Melon Salad

Executive Chef Jeff Rogers of the world-famous Quail Lodge shared this recipe with us when he led a Chef Walk from our Farm Stand in Carmel Valley, California. This salad takes great advantage of the late-summer/early-fall organic bounty of fresh melons and heirloom tomatoes we enjoy here in California.
