The market is bursting with fresh, local fruits and vegetables right now. Cantaloupes, watermelons, squash, tomatoes and much more. We've been taking full advantage of this by piling our basket high every time we go. All of this variety is pretty inspiring, and it's gotten me thinking about flavor combinations that I normally wouldn't. Especially salads. It's so easy to whip up a salad with such fresh ingredients and you barely have to dress them because flavors are at their peaks right. As are colors, so not only can you make fresh, delicious salads, but they're also gorgeous. I think summer is a time to let food speak for itself, and I'm all for that, especially since we've been under a heat advisory for a week now, and the idea of turning the oven on isn't exactly a pleasant one.
This salad was crazy easy to make. Again, I can't recall the exact amounts of all of the ingredients but there aren't many and you can just throw them together in whatever proportions you think would be good. Start with cantaloupe, red onion, cucumber, and radish. Chop all of the ingredients into bite-size pieces and mix together. I would use mostly melon and cucumber and add the radish and onion more sparingly, but that's just me. And now you're already more than halfway done! I told you this one would be easy. Next, mix a few tablespoons of apple cider vinegar with a bit of honey and pour over the salad, it doesn't take much. Sprinkle on a little bit of salt and voila!
