Its that time of year when lovely summer produce is in full swing, the perfect accompaniment to hot as well as sunshine-filled days. For evenings when we dont wish to outlay the lot of time during the hot stove, try this singular corn as well as cantaloupe salad instead. Its the perfect balance of tainted as well as sweet, as well as the the good go-to for potlucks or lunches; we can even offer it as the side plate with whatever youre receiving off the grill.Cantaloupe is the single of my favorite summer fruits, yet it can be wily to collect the developed the single from the market. Because the melon is the star of this dish, the quality as well as taste will change the overall outcome. The best way to collect the cantaloupe is to smell the turn territory where the vine was attached; it should have the sweet, slightly musky scent. A developed cantaloupe will be orange or golden in color as well as feel complicated for the size. Avoid melons with as well most immature or white color.This recipe calls for barely cooking the corn to discharge the little of the rawness, but if we can get your hands upon really fresh, honeyed corn, feel giveaway to abandon the cooking process altogether as well as add the raw kernels right to the salad. The briny feta cheese ideally balances the juicy cantaloupe as well as honeyed corn kernels, yet Gorgonzola or blue cheese can be used instead.Corn as well as Cantaloupe SaladMakes 6 servingsIngredients:3 ears uninformed corn1 middle cantaloupe, chopped (about 4 cups)1/2 cup minced red onion1/2 cup ripped basil leaves1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese1 tablespoon olive oil2 teaspoons white balsamic vinegar1/4 teaspoon salt1/4 teaspoon creatively belligerent pepperDirections:Bring the middle pot of water to the boil.
