Cucumber Cantaloupe Salad

Light and refreshing, this salad is the definition of summer.  Fresh cantaloupe, crisp cucumber, mint, lemon, and rich macadamia nuts.  Perfect as a cookout side or lazy, hot evenings when cooking is the last thing you want to do!  The best parts… the way mint works with cantaloupe, the refreshing cucumber mingling with lemon and salt,…
