Melon Mozzarella Salad with Basil
We’re in the middle of another heat wave, so I’ve had cooling, no-cooking-necessary salads on repeat. There’s really not much to say about this melon mozzarella salad, other than it’s simple, easy and delicious…and it’s perfect for summer.
1 cantaloupe melon
1 honeydew melon
2 cups blueberries
1½ cups mozzarella balls
1 cup fresh basil leaves, loosely packed
1½ tbsp olive oil
½ tsp white balsamic vinegar
½ tsp honey
salt and pepper, to taste
chopped raw cashews, for garnish
Slice the melons in half, remove the seeds and use a melon baller to create small melon balls. Place those in a large mixing bowl. Add the blueberries, mozzarella and basil.
Whisk together the olive oil, vinegar, honey and salt and pepper in a small bowl and drizzle on top of the salad. Gently stir to combine.
Top with chopped cashews before serving.
Enjoy my people!
