The flavor combination in this salad is fantastic!! I don’t usually leave comments, but this salad was that good. The juicy sweetness from the cantaloupe with a spicy punch of the arugula was such a great combo. Not to mention the goat cheese and pistachio... I didn’t have lemon, so I used lime. I also didn’t have fresh basil, and just omitted it. I’m sure it would make the salad even better, but it was excellent without. The perfect summer salad and something different. Read More
