┬áCantaloupe Salad – Cucumber, Fresh Herbs and Lemon-Thyme Dressing

 

Cantaloupe Salad – Cucumber, Fresh Herbs and Lemon-Thyme Dressing. It became so boiling hot over the last past days and I guess summer is finally here ! So what better than to sit in our little selfmade garden and watch the plants growing like crazy and sun bath with them ?

Ach what a life we could have if we would not have exams, final presentations and assignments…But who are we to complain ? We are so happy at the moment and only a few weeks left until Moritz flies to Bali and I am spending my summer working in Germany and spending my summer with my beloved ones at home :3

Today I did not feel like eating something big and warm so I decided to use the leftover cantaloupe and dig into the fresh garden herbs. We are newly experimenting with new dressings, this time it became a fresh lemon-thyme vinaigrette and it perfectly fit this dish. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

How you do it:

  1. Wash all the leaves and herbs in fresh, cold water (we latly use the washing water to water the plants. I know-damn hippie).
  2. Cut the cantaloupe, remove the seeds with a spoon and cut the cantaloupe into slices and remove the peel.
  3. Wash the cucumber and cut it into thin slices as well as the cantaloupe
  4. Mince the herbs finly and add it to the salad.
  5. Really wash your lemon before you use the cest to add it into your dressing
  6. mix all the ingridients for the lemon- thyme dressing in a small glass and set aside
  7. Roast your sunflowers and the chickpeas and let them cool slightly
  8. Place the salad on a plate, add your toppings and the dressing, short before you serve
