  • 3 tablespoon(s) lime juice
  • 4 teaspoon(s) honey, raw
  • 2 tablespoon(s) olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) sea salt, coarse
  • 1 medium cantaloupe(s) quartered and seeded
  • 1 medium avocado(s)
  • 1 cup(s) tomatoes, cherry or grape halved


  1. In a large bowl, whisk together lime juice, honey, oil and sea salt; set aside.
  2. Cut each cantaloupe quarter in half lengthwise. Run a knife between the flesh and the skin of the melon, discard skin. Slice each wedge lengthwise into 1/2 inch pieces.
  3. Cut each avocado in quarters length-wise and then into 1/2 inch thick slices. Add cantaloupe, avocado, and grape tomatoes to bowl with dressing and toss to coat.


  1. Anyone ever tried this with another kind of fruit? I think mangos could be awesome, but pricey. Watermelon maybe? I’m just not the biggest fan of cantaloupe.

  2. The burger was great but I did not care for the honey and lime over cantaloupe at all. It was so sweet I couldn’t stand it. This one was a miss for me.

  3. Oh WOW! This is delicious! I was very skeptical of all the different combinations here cantaloupe/avocado/tomato seemed strange to me. The taste is amazing though! This is a great summertime beat the heat salad. I refrigerated my leftovers and am having it for breakfast.
