World Foods – Sri Lanka – Cantaloupe and Blueberry Salad

By Amila Wickramarachchi from Food Corner

Who doesn’t like a refreshing salad in a hot summer day?

This Cantaloupe and Blueberry salad is a really simple and quick dessert I tried with some yogurt and honey over it. Specially during a hot summer day, having a healthy snack with some fruits is a perfect idea and melons come to my mind first. I have tried many recipes with different melon types and this is one of the easiest and quickest desserts I have ever tried!

I used a melon baller to scoop cantaloupe, but it is not necessary. Instead use a fruit knife and cut cantaloupe into small bite size cubes of similar size. Taste of blueberries was really good with cantaloupe balls and yogurt added some rich smooth flavor to it. I used natural low fat yogurt to keep it healthier.

Over the fruits, I added some fresh lime juice. Lime juice gave a good flavor to this salad. Once honey is drizzled over, it looked perfect and delicious. I couldn’t wait until I finish the whole bowl.

  4. Love blueberries, I have them most days. Love honey and yoghurt but not sure about the melon but I guess I could substitute for a different fruit? Very healthy and refreshing though!

  5. im just starting to enjoy fruit again after being allergic to fresh fruit for over 15 years, for some reason i can eat it again, maybe as ive grown older the allergy has dissapeared but im loving melon and berries x

  6. We love melon here but rarely add it to anything as we’re mainly juicing at the moment.I think the kids would like this as an afternoon treat after school.

  7. I just finished eating blueberries should have waited before consuming them all to try out this recipe. Maybe next time x
