Simple Cantaloupe Summer Salad
-1 Large cucumber, peeled and thinly sliced
-1 medium cantaloupe, de-seeded and cut into large cubes
-1 red onion, sliced into thin slices
-1 medium avocado, sliced into cubes
-2 tablespoons lime juice
-3 tablespoons cilantro
-Cut cantaloupe in 1/2, remove seeds and scoop out flesh, keeping “bowl” of cantaloupe intact.
-Place the cucumber, cantaloupe, avocado and red onion in a medium bowl.
-Season to taste with the lime juice.
-Garnish generously with cilantro leaves.
(IT IS ALWAYS FUN TO SCOOP OUT THE CANTALOUPE, KEEPING THE BOWL IN TACT AND THEN PLACE THE SALAD BACK INTO THE EMPTY CANTALOUPE, USING THE SKIN AS THE SALAD BOWL)
