This recipe celebrates the peak of cantaloupe season! Fresh, Mediterranean and incredibly easy to make.
Yield: serves 4
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: none
Cantaloupe, 1 whole diced
Feta cheese, ½ pound
Toasted pine nuts, 2 tablespoons
Black taggiasca olives, 3 tablespoons
Extra virgin Olive Oil, 2 tablespoons
Fresh basil, ½ bunch torn
Salt and pepper to taste
Scrape seeds out of the cantaloupe, dice and mix with all other ingredients in a bowl. Crumble the feta with your hands, the texture will be more pleasant. Tear the basil with your hands and don’t chop with a knife, the metal oxidizes it very quickly and will make it turn dark brown. Serve chilled with a glass of crisp white wine.
