Prepare the cantaloupe: Start by cutting the cantaloupe in half, scooping out the seeds, and peeling the skin. Slice the cantaloupe into bite-sized pieces of your desired shape and set aside.

Important Storage Suggestion:
Before you go ahead and make this salad, here’s one very important thing to remember when storing this salad for later use ->Don’t Mix Seasoning Unless Ready to Serve !
As the moment you add seasoning to the salad, the salt starts to make the cantaloupe watery and you’ll end up with a very watery salad. Hence, do remember this important tip.
Whether you’re hosting a backyard barbecue, planning a picnic, or simply craving a light and healthy meal, this salad is sure to be a hit.
Embrace the spirit of summer and indulge in the goodness of this tantalizing salad.
