Melons are tasty, in season and well priced right now. Here is a recipe for a light summer salad to enjoy while camping. The salad takes only a few steps and is well worth the effort!
4-6 sprigs of fresh mint, chopped medium fine
Zest of 1/2 a lemon
2 tablespoons of lemon juice
1 tablespoon of Amontillado style Sherry
2 teaspoons honey
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
2 tablespoons olive oil
Remove the rind and seeds from the cantaloupe. Dice the melon in 1″ cubes and place in a medium sized bowl. Chop mint into small to medium pieces and add to the bowl with the melon just prior to serving.
In a measuring cup or small bowl, combine the salad dressing ingredients and whisk to combine.
Add the dressing into the bowl with the cut up melons and stir to combine. Serve.
