Cantaloupe Olive Salad with Mint Lime Dressing

Labels: { , }

© 2020 | | © 2020 |

A wonderful combination of fruit and lettuce with a mint lime dressing. This salad makes an ideal accompaniment to cold or smoked meats and poultry. As well as being fresh, light and tasty, this salad is incredibly easy to make. Truly a refreshing summer delight! If you prefer, you can substitute honeydew or watermelon for cantaloupe.

Mint Lime Dressing
  • 1/2 Cantaloupe
  • 100 g Mixed olives, pitted
  • 2 Romaine lettuce, cut into wedges
  • 15 g Mint leaves, finely chopped
  • 1 Red chilli pepper, seeds removed, thinly sliced
  • Zest and juice of 1 lime
  • 1 clove Garlic
  • 2 tsp Ginger, chopped
  • 100 ml Olive oil
  • Sea salt
  1. Place all the ingredients for the dressing in a jar with lid. Shake until thoroughly mixed and refrigerate until ready to use.
  2. Use a melon baller to scoop balls from the cantaloupe. Peel the rest and cut into small cubes.
  3. Place cantaloupe and mixed olive in a bowl. Add in 2 tablespoons of mint lime dressing. Toss to combine.
  4. Cut the romaine lettuce heart into 4-6 wedges and arragne them on a serving platter. Place the melon and olive mixture in the center and between the wedges. Spoon some dressing over and serve immediately! | © 2020 | | © 2020 |

Yum! I've never had a cantaloupe salad. I've certainly never had cantaloupe paired with olives! This is really interesting!

I love salting my canteloupe but I've never combined it with olives. This sounds like a great salad! I know the husband would love it because he's never not liked anything with olives. :) Thanks Angie.

Whenever i read posts about Cantaloup, it reminds me of a old friend who tried hard to remember the name of this fruit as "Can't Elope!".

This summer I have been relying a lot on up'ping my intake of salads and what a great way to incorporate fruits into salads.Thanks,munching on.
