Cantaloupe, Red Onion & Walnut Salad

I discovered the recipe for this Cantaloupe, Red Onion and Walnut Salad while doing a little menu planning for a lunch this weekend. Since I was working from home I decided to make this for lunch today. With our heat wave going I love being able make something without having to turn on the stove or oven.

This is a brief post but I wanted to share this with you before the weekend. This salad would be a great one to bring to a potluck or picnic. We are celebrating my sister in law’s birthday tomorrow. How are you spending this last weekend in August?
