2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon honey
1/2 teaspoon poppy seeds
1/8 teaspoon sea salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 medium cantaloupe
2 cups arugula, washed, dried, & torn
1/4 cup red onion, finely diced
Dressing: Combine olive oil, lemon juice, honey, poppy seeds, salt, and pepper in a small glass jar. Set aside to allow flavors to blend.
Cantaloupe: 1. Wash the outside of the cantaloupe thoroughly.
2. Slice in half, remove seeds, then cut into wedges.
3. Continue slicing down to the rind to create chunks, then slide a sharp knife underneath the chunks to remove the rind. Place chunks in a salad bowl.
4. Add the arugula leaves and red onion.
5. Toss with dressing just prior to serving.
