Cantaloupe Tomato Salad

I will continue the summer themed recipes with a re-post of my favorite fruit salad! I posted this recipe last year with a couple of recipes that were made for a cooking night with some of Meg's friends. I decided it needed to be highlighted with it's own post. My mom gave me this recipe several years ago. I have wowed people at pot lucks and BBQs with this salad. It is one of J's favorites. I made it last week for the first time in almost a year and he said "oh yay! I love this." This may not be impressive for you, but for a guy that gets a new recipe 2-3 times a week, it is a lot for him to remember a dish. Plus is is sooo easy! I think it is what I am taking to the fourth of July BBQ we are attending this weekend.

Cantaloupe Tomato Salad
1 Cantaloupe
12 cherry tomatoes
1/4 cup basil
2 Tbsp Olive Oil
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
salt and pepper
Make pretty melon balls! I love balling melon, I don't know why, it is just very very fun!
Slice tomatoes. I usually cut them in half, but these were a little big, so I sliced them in quarters.
Slice the basil, real pretty like..
Mix all ingredients together in a big bowl. 
Allow salad to sit in the fridge for about an hour before serving and all the ingredients will meld together perfectly!
It is pretty too!

This Salad is truly one of my favs. I am taking it to our BBQ party on Sunday. It's just so good! The photo makes my mouth water just knowing how good it is!
