Cantalopue, Feta and Pesto Salad

We all know pesto is perfect on pasta and as a spread on sandwiches. This is an alternative, a great summery fresh and easy to make recipe.

Yield: serves 4

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cooking time: none



Pesto, 3 tablespoons – Pesto by Roi

Cantaloupe, 1 whole diced

Feta cheese, ½ pound diced

Toasted pine nuts, 2 tablespoons

Black small olives, 3 tablespoons – Olive taggiasche denocciolate by Roi

Extra virgin Olive Oil, 2 tablespoons – Roi Mosto Extra Virgin Olive Oil by Roi

Fresh basil, ½ bunch torn

Fresh mint, ½ bunch chopped



Mix all ingredients together in a bowl and serve chilled. 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.
