Cantaloupe Cucumber Salad


Prep time: 
15 minutes


This summer salad has an invigorating mix of sweet, salty and crunchy that's perfect for a light lunch or side dish.


  • 1 cantaloupe, halved and deseeded
  • 1 large cucumber, halved 
  • 2 ounces crumbly feta cheese
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • juice of one lemon
  • pinch of salt
  • 10 basil leaves, coarsely chopped


  1. Using a melon baller, create as many balls from the cantaloupe as possible. Alternatively, chop up the melon into cubes. Add them to a large bowl. 
  2. If cucumber has large seeds, use the melon baller or a spoon to scrape them out. Cut the cucumber into thin half moons and add to the melons. 
  3. Combine the olive oil, lemon juice, and salt in a small bowl and whisk. 
  4. Add the vinaigrette to the fruit and toss to combine. Then top with the crumbled feta and basil leaves.
