EASY BALLER SUMMER SALAD
I am celebrating the first day of summer with this colourful and zesty Easy Baller Summer Salad. It’s a mixture of fruit and veg, something I have been experimenting with a lot lately. I used cantaloupe but you can use other types of melon if you prefer. This salad recipe is not only easy it is also quite flexible!
Fruit and veg in one dish is more than just a salad, to me it’s really a ‘salad meets dessert’ kind of dish. As it is quite sweet chances are it will take care of your sugar cravings! Which is great if you are watching your diet and trying to stay away from ‘serious’ desserts.
This easy salad is sweet, zingy and refreshing and absolutely perfect served at a summer barbecue. You will need a melon baller to create equal sized ball shapes of the fruit and veg. This is so much more fun to do than the usual chopping and slicing! The melon baller is also quite easy to use, even if you’ve never used it before (like me!).
I also used my lemon baller to make these Roasted Peppers and Silken Tofu in Tomato Sauce.
This little gadget proved also really handy in making this Spicy Quinoa Stuffed Eggplant recipe.
You can chill this summer salad, without the dressing, for about 30 minutes and add the dressing just before serving.
