Celebrate Farmer’s Markets ~ Cantaloupe and Spring Green Salad

Now that the weather is getting warmer, farmer’s markets are in full swing again. I love to try the different foods they carry that I can’t find everywhere. Plus I’m helping to support local farmers, which is a big added bonus. Last week I bought homemade raspberry vinegar and I tried a cut of goat meat. We’ve never tried goat before and would have to say we really enjoyed it! It’s a little culinary adventure right in our backyard. I can’t wait to see what I can find next week.

The raspberry vinegar made its way into a recipe based on one I found in a cookbook called Giada’s Kitchen. It’s a recipe that includes ingredients you can find at farmer’s markets right now.

Cantaloupe and Spring Green Salad


¼ cup fresh orange juice

1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

1 ½ tablespoons raspberry vinegar

3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

Salt and pepper to taste


1 cantaloupe, cut into 1 inch cubes

2 cups spring greens, such as baby romaine or arugula

Whisk the ingredients for the vinaigrette together in a small bowl and toss with the salad. Enjoy!
