Ingredients

Fruit

  • 1 medium cantaloupe, honeydew melon, or watermelon 24 oz

Veggies

  • 1 cup cucumber, sliced 8 oz
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved 8 oz
  • 1/2 cup red onion finely diced or thinly sliced

Fat

Garnish

  • 2 Tbsp fresh mint chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Mix the dressing in a medium bowl and add the cucumbers, onions, and tomatoes. Toss to combine. Let them marinate for a few minutes while you cut up the melon.
  • Chop the melon into slices and then cubes or scoop it with a melon baller. Gently fold the melon into the rest of the salad.
  • Garnish with the fresh mint and salt and pepper to taste.
  • This salad is great made ahead and refrigerated for a few hours, as it allows the flavors to meld. (I wouldn’t make it more than 8 hours ahead though).

Notes

  • This salad is yummy without the oil too, feel free to leave it out or add feta cheese or nuts as a garnish.
