Refreshing Summer Salad
The summer is here, although not necessarily every day in London, unfortunately :)
But when it's hot and it feels ... well, summery (at least according to the calendar), one needs freshness and aroma in one's diet.
So, just a ultra quick fruit salad, with a bit of crushed cardamom seeds to enhance the sweet fruity flavour, a bit of desalted feta-like cheese and fresh mint leaves.
And the star fruit in this recipe is the Cantaloupe melon for its sweet aromatic taste and orange flesh.
1 Cantaloupe melon - peeled and the flesh diced
125 gr Bulgarian cow cheese 55 % fat - soaked in water overnight to remove salt. This will also make the cheese texture silky.
the seeds from 2-3 pods of cardamom
fresh mint leaves
Mix all the ingredients and decorate a your own taste.
Then just enjoy.
