Minty Cantaloupe and Tomato Salad

Salad 3 in “A Salad For Each Week” Series

This is a salad that I posted awhile back. However, with the heat of summer sitting upon us, it seemed only fitting to use these cool and refreshing fruits for one of my “A Salad For Each Week” recipes. Once again, thanks to my friend 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!

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!
