Cantaloupe melon salad with feta and lime: refreshing recipe

Desserts

I have spent all the summers of my life in my family's country house, surrounded by melon groves, so I cannot conceive of a summer without this fruit. My favorite is the Piel de Sapo and I used to despise other varieties, but lately I have discovered its gastronomic possibilities. A good example is this refreshing cantaloupe melon salad with feta cheese.

The cantaloupe is distinguished by its small size and its orange flesh, with a peculiar sweetish flavor. For my taste it is the perfect melon to combine in savory dishes, especially with cheeses and nuts. Serving it in small balls as part of a salad we achieve a very attractive and simple effect that is most appetizing.

Cut the melon in half and remove the seeds. Scoop out small spheres with a scoop, or cut into bite-size cubes.

Wash the arugula and lamb's lettuce if necessary, draining them well. Mix and arrange in a bowl. Add the melon, the sliced ​​black olives and the feta cheese cut into small cubes. Grate the skin of the lime on top.

Lightly salt and pepper and add a few chopped fresh basil leaves. Season to taste with the lime juice, olive oil and vinegar. The sweetness of the balsamic works very well, although a softer vinegar such as apple vinegar is also suitable.
