Summer Tomato & Cantaloupe Salad

It’s about that time of year for something fresh, summery, and light to take with you on the go...


Ingredients


VEGGIES:



  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced cucumber

  • 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes (thinly sliced)

  • 1/4 medium red onion (thinly sliced)

  • 1 Tbsp olive or avocado oil

  • 2 tsp apple cider vinegar

  • 1 healthy pinch each sea salt + black pepper


DRESSING:



  • 3 Tbsp lime juice

  • 1 Tbsp maple syrup

  • 1 pinch sea salt

  • 1 Tbsp olive or avocado oil


CANTALOUPE:



  • 3 heaping cups cantaloupe (cubed or scooped with a melon baller // ~1 cantaloupe)

  • 2 Tbsp fresh mint


Directions





  • Add cucumber, tomato, and onion to a small mixing bowl and top with olive oil, apple cider vinegar, salt, and pepper. Toss to combine. Then taste and adjust flavor as needed, adding more vinegar for acidity or salt and pepper for flavor balance. Set in the refrigerator to chill.



  • Next, prepare the dressing by adding lime juice, maple syrup, and sea salt to a small mixing bowl and whisking to combine. Then slowly stream in olive oil while whisking to combine. Taste and adjust flavor as needed, adding more lime juice for brightness/acidity, maple syrup for sweetness, or salt for flavor balance. Set aside.



  • Add cantaloupe to a large serving bowl and top with dressing. Gently toss to combine. Then add the cucumber-tomato-onion salad on top, leaving any excess liquid/dressing behind.



  • Gently toss to combine and garnish with fresh mint. Serve.



  • Best when fresh, though leftovers keep in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Leave mint on the side to keep as fresh as possible.
