Cantaloupe and feta salad

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.


Buon Appetito!
