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.

Buon Appetito!
