Fresh Melon Mint Caprese Salad + Pomegranate – a bright, vibrant summer salad that is fresh and delicious!
Summer! It’s here! (I know technically summer isn’t “official” for another couple of weeks, but I don’t care). School it out and it is finally warm out = it’s summer in my book. And that means all the wonderful fruits and veggies are baaaaack and filling up all of our refrigerators ? I am in a cantaloupe phase… not sure why…. but I just keep picking the best ones and have slowly become addicted (I suppose there are worse things) so naturally, I decided to create a new recipe around my obsession. This Fresh Melon Mint Caprese Salad + Pomegranate is a modified classic caprese salad (which would normally have tomatoes, mozzarella and basil). Instead of the tomatoes – cantaloupe; instead of the basil – mint; instead of the mozzarella — okay I kept the mozzarella (but feel free to skip that part if you are non-dairy or Whole30). Then add some proscuitto (because cantaloupe and prosciutto are ah-mazing together) and some pomegranate (for the pop of extra flavor). It is amazing and wonderful and I hope you guys give it a try!
