Cantaloupe, Cucumber & English Pea Salad

"Savory fruit salads are officially a thing. (And,  for the record,  cucumber is a fruit.)”*

Elevate traditional Peas and Cheese with this light and refreshing non-dairy cantaloupe and cucumber salad. Fresh English peas, one of the first harbingers of summer, are just coming into season. And cardamom, coriander and medium spicy peppers balance out the sweetness of the melon to create a new flavor palette in this dish ready in about 30 minutes!

Find the Bon Appétit* recipe here. I added blanched fresh English peas, substituted lemon zest for sumac, and used cherry and Serano chilies.

I try out these recipes so you don't have to (and modify them for Paleo where possible). The rating will reflect my opinion of the final result in terms of taste, ease of preparation, nutrition, and sometimes, cost.
