Fresh and Minty Cantaloupe and Tomato Salad

Minty Cantaloupe and Tomato Salad

Welcome to spring time in Florida- 70s in the morning and a projected high of 91 for the afternoon. It’s actually the start of summer here, and there is nothing as wonderful as a cool and refreshing treat on such a day as today. So, I have the perfect snack for this warm day.

I know what you were thinking as you looked at the title of this post- “Cantaloupe and tomatoes? That’s a weird combo!” I thought that too and maybe even made a funny face. However, I trusted my best friend, Heather, when she passed the recipe along. So thank you Heather for convincing me to try this when I would have otherwise passed it by!

Minty Cantaloupe and Tomato Salad

1 Cantaloupe-cut into bite sized pieces
1 pint of cherry tomatoes cut in half
handful of chopped mint
sprinkle of kosher salt
2 tbsp of rice vinegar
2 tbsp of olive oil

Place all ingredients into a bowl and gently mix. Let it stand for a bit in order for the flavors to marry. Enjoy!
