Arugula Shaved Cantaloupe Salad

This is a quick and refreshing fruit and veggie salad. I enjoy salads especially when the dressing is minimal. Seriously, this is just in time for hot hot summer!

Arugula and Shaved Cantaloupe Salad
Ingredients: handfuls of organic arugula, shaved cantaloupe, raisins, small pieces of orange, some juice from the orange

Directions: Put all the ingredients in a deep salad bowl and toss thoroughly. Served chilled. Add some walnuts if preferred for the extra nuttiness and crunch.

The arugula's peppery chicory kick, sweetness of cantaloupe and raisins, with overtones of citrus-zing from the orange - a harmonized orchestra of tastes.
