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?
Cantaloupe, Red Onion, and Walnut Salad
1/4 cup fresh orange juice
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 1/2 tablespoons raspberry vinegar
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Combine the orange juice, lemon juice, and raspberry vinegar in a small bowl. Slowly add the olive oil, whisking constantly until the mixture is smooth. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
1 cantaloupe, cut into 1-inch cubes
1 small red onion, thinly sliced
2 cups arugula
1 cup chopped walnuts, toasted
Combine the cantaloupe, red onion, arugula, and 1/2 cup of the walnuts in a large salad bowl. Pour the dressing over the salad and toss well. Garnish with the remaining walnuts.
