Mesclun and Summer Melon Salad

From Dorothy McNett's recipes at Use any fresh fruit of the season, such as berries...

3-4 cups of baby mixed greens
1/2 - 3/4 cup diced melon pieces
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground peppercorns
drizzle of a great Balsamic vinegar
2-3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon lemon juice
pinch of sea salt
snipped fresh herbs, such as basil, thyme, oregano
a few salted peanuts or pecans, etc. for crispiness

Place the greens into a beautiful salad bowl and chill, if possible. In meantime, place melon pieces in a small dish and sprinkle with the pepper and the Balsamic vinegar. Set aside. When ready to serve, add the fruit to the greens. In a measuring cup, whisk together oil, lemon juice, sea salt, and herbs and drizzle over salad and toss in the nuts. Serve immediately.
