Fresh Melon Salad

Fresh Melon & Ricotta Salad

(CantaGold, Cucumber & Radish Salad)

A fresh and simple salad, with sweet CantaGold, crisp cucumber and crunchy radish. Topped with a basil-mint vinaigrette, this salad makes a great side dish. Or add peppered bacon bits or mounds of prosciutto for a more hearty salad.

Serves 4-6

  • 2 Cantagolds
  • 1 English cucumber
  • 2 bunches radish
  • 1/2 small shallot, finely diced
  • 2 Tbsp finely chopped fresh basil and mint leaves
  • 4 Tbsp apple cider vinegar, champagne vinegar or lemon juice
  • 3 Tbsp light olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1 1/2 cups whole milk ricotta

Salt and pepper

  1. Cut 2 CantaGolds in half and seed.  Use a melon baller to make into balls.
  2. Mandolin or very thinly slice 1 English cucumber and 2 bunches of radishes. Place all into a large bowl.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together ½ of a finely-diced shallot, 2 Tbsp of finely chopped basil and mint, 4 Tbsp of apple cider vinegar (or champagne vinegar or lemon juice), 3 Tbsp of light olive oil and 1 Tbsp of pure maple syrup. Drizzle over CantaGold mixture.
  4. Spoon 1 ½ cups of whole milk ricotta atop a medium platter. Salt lightly. Top ricotta with CantaGold mixture and enjoy!
