cucumber melon salad


1 small to medium Cantaloupe, diced
1 small to medium Honeydew, diced
1-2 medium size Jicama, diced
1-2 medium Cucumbers, cut in half lengthwise and sliced or diced, remove seeds or use English Cucumbers if desired
2 JalapeƱos, seeds and ribs removed, finely diced

Orange Juice, about 2 tablespoons
Lime Juice, about 2 tablespoons
Olive Oil, 3 tablespoons or more

¼ cup of Mint, chopped


1.      In a large mixing bowl, combine melon, jicama, cucumbers and jalapeƱos.
2.      Muddle mint in olive oil slightly. Drizzle olive oil mixture into citrus juice while whisking vigorously.
Add dressing to fruits and vegetables. Mix gently to combine. Serve immediately

Chop fruits and vegetables in a smaller dice for the feel of a chopped salad.

Serve over arugula or other baby greens.

Substitute apples if jicama is not available. Use other types of melons. Add berries to fruit mixture.

Add crumbled feta or goat cheese for a salty addition.
