Green Salad with Melon and Citrus Vinaigrette

This is a very refreshing and fresh tasting salad. We often add strawberries, apples and pears to our green salads so why not try melon? This was actually quite tasty. Dress it with a simple store-bought vinaigrette or try making your own. Either way this salad was tasty and a great compliment to the barbecued chicken we had! Try it with summer melon or watermelon too.

Citrus Vinaigrette
1/4 cup fresh orange juice
1 Tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 1/2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon sugar or honey or Agave Nectar
olive oil (about 3 tablespoons, eyeball it)
salt & pepper

Whisk all ingredients except the olive oil, salt and pepper in a small bowl or shake in a salad dressing container until well combined. Slowly drizzle the olive oil in whisking constantly until well mixed and combined. Give it a taste and season as needed with salt & pepper to taste.

Our salad had
1/2 medium cantaloupe or other melon cut into cubes
1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced
2 cups of your favorite lettuce (arugula, romaine, butter, etc)
1/2 cup walnuts, toasted
