Notes

Here's the fastest way to cut a melon into cubes: cut a thin slice from both ends of the melon. Halve the melon crosswise and scoop out the seeds. Lay the halves on a work surface, cut side down, and slice off the skin in lengthwise strips with a small sharp knife. Slice the melon 1 inch thick with a large knife, then cut across to make 1-inch cubes.
