Take your pick: Watermelon or Cantaloupe!


Peel and seed a medium cantaloupe or half a small watermelon. Using a melon baller, set aside 6 small cantaloupe balls. If using watermelon, cut 6 small flower shapes. You can use small cookie cutters. Chop the rest of the melon. Place in blender. Add 1 small cucumber, peeled, seeded and cut in pieces. Then add 2 tbsp chopped red onion, 1/2 tsp Kosher salt, and 2 tbsp Premium White Balsamic. Blend until smooth. With motor running, gradually pour in 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil.  If too thick add water, 1 tbsp at a time. Season with additional salt and freshly ground black pepper. Pour in medium bowl and place in fridge for 1 hour. Serve with cooked bacon pieces (for cantaloupe), crumbled Feta (for watermelon) and diced cucumber (for both). Drizzle your choice of fruity or spicy fresh olive oil. For added fun, float melon balls.
