Decided to take advantage of the peak of cantaloupe season (June/August) by making a salad. It was the perfect time to use the nifty gadget, melon baller on my cantaloupe. It turned out some super-sweet balls. They made my taste buds salivate with delight. Balanced out my sweet cantaloupe with some of my favorite berries, blueberries.
These fiber and antioxidant berries were just what my melon needed. With the tart and sweet taste, they gave a fine balance to my summer salad. With a squeeze of fresh lemon and an input of finely chopped mint, my cantaloupe, and berry salad came to a refreshing and mouth-watering finish.
