2 tbsp tamari (gluten-free soy sauce)

The Galia melon is a cantaloupe-honeydew cross. It’s a super sweet and amazing melon. When you receive your melon, locate the circle at the top of the melon where the stem came off and take a big whiff. If you don’t small anything, it might benefit your melon to sit on your counter for a few days. If your melon smells super sweet already go ahead and put it in your fridge or enjoy immediately.
