Whether a light end to a meal or a mid-day snack, this fruit salad is extremely quick to prepare. We added Asiago, a light Italian cheese. We then drizzled it with simple orange juice mixed with a little olive oil.
Serves: 2-3 | Preparation time: 10 mins
- Peeled Almonds, to toast: 20 g
- Asiago Italian cheese: 30 g
- Blackberries: about 10 – 12
- Cucumbers: ½
- Cantaloupe melons: ½
- Mint leaves: about 1 sprig
- Orange juice, to taste
- EVOO – Extra Virgin Olive Oil, a tablespoon
Lightly toast the peeled almonds in a saucepan no oil nor butter addition. Set aside.
Remove the melon seeds with a spoon, then peel the melon and dice the pulp into cubes. Peel and slice the cucumber. Cut Asiago cheese into little chunks.
Combine almonds, melon, cucumber and Asiago cheese all together in a bowl, then add the blackberries and few mint leaves.
Dress the salad with a few drops of orange juice and EVOO, or only with orange juice.
