an unusual pairing...........

edited to add

Pop on over to Grab Your Fork who happens to be hosting DMBLGIT...there are a record number of entries this month. I am in awe at some of the photos.

While visiting the tasty food blog bakingsheet , nic introduced us to a wonderful summer treat. And like a lot of things it reminded me of another summer treat that I sometimes actually crave, the worlds healthiest food says so right here, Cantaloupe

We are somewhat fortunate living here in Florida that we get cantaloupe more often than most areas of the country. But these melons are the best RIGHT NOW!!!

I had this dish at a posh eatery in South Beach several years ago. I immediately went home and re-created this dish to my taste, as the original version had chopped mint thru out. I am not a big mint lover other than those green gummy mint leaves or oh yeah a

Doodles adapted version of a cantaloupe salad

1 cantaloupe ……… seen in the photo I used a melon baller

½ cup crumbled gorgonzola cheese

¼ cup toasted pecan pieces

a sprig or 3 of parsley

squeeze of half a lime or more if you so desire

Combine all of the ingredients in a glass serving bowl because it looks so pretty. This salad can be prepared in the morning and then assembled at the last minute as I don’t think the gorgonzola would like sitting in the lime juice.

Next I am waiting patiently for the wonderful Georgia peaches to arrive………..stay tuna’d
