Strawberry and Cantaloupe Salad with Fresh Mint
Yield: 2 to 4 servings
½ cantaloupe, seeded, rind removed, and sliced into 1-inch sections
2 pints strawberries, hulled and quartered
2 tablespoons of balsamic OR white wine vinegar*
15 medium-sized fresh mint leaves, chopped finely
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1 cup crumbled feta cheese
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1. Gently toss the cantaloupe, strawberries, vinegar of choice*, pepper, and olive oil in a large bowl.
2. Add the feta and chopped mint to the bowl just prior to serving and toss.
*Note: If you prefer the flavor of the strawberries to pop, go with a nice balsamic. If you’re more of a cantaloupe person, go with the white wine vinegar. Both work great.
