Melon-Goat Cheese Salad

Summer is almost over and I am cramming in some delicious salads which can be served alone for lunch. This was a totally refreshing salad thanks to the cantelope.  Everything blended together and there was a subtle sweet taste.  Hubby had a gluten-free bagel with it but I ate it alone and it was enough.

School will be starting soon so time together is a priority.  No matter how much I have to do, in the summer, it is still leisurely compared to the work year.  This dish goes along with the attitude.

Melon-Goat Cheese Salad

Ingredients :

3 cups romaine lettuce, cut into small pieces
1/2 cup cantelope, cut into small pieces
3 tablespoons dried cranberries
1/2 cup red onion, thinly sliced
2 - 3 ounces aged goat cheese, crumbled
1 teaspoon  honey

1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon basil, chopped
1/8 teaspoon fresh ground pepper

Place romaine, cantelope, cranberries, red onion and goat cheese in large bowl.
Sprinkle lemon juice and honey mixture on top and season with black pepper.  Mix together.  Add basil.
