Melon and Nectarine Shaved Salad

1 small melon (honeydew, ananas, cantaloupe, etc.)
3 small ripe nectarines
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon honey (optional if your fruit is very sweet)
1/4 cup pistachio meats
1/4 teaspoon cardamom
2 teaspoons sugar

If the rind of your melon is very thin and soft, go ahead and peel it with a veggie peeler and then quarter and seed it. Otherwise, quarter and seed the melon and then cut the rind off with a paring knife.

Halve, twist, and remove pit from nectarines. Slice the melon and nectarines on the thinnest setting of a mandolin or slicer.
Toss in a bowl and set aside. Mix the lemon juice and honey in a small bowl and then drizzle over the fruit.

Pulse the pistachio meats, cardamom, and sugar into a food processor or blender until coarsely chopped. Plate the fruit in a nice mound onto individual plates and then sprinkle the pistachio mixture over top. Enjoy!
