  1. In a large bowl, whisk together lime juice, honey, oil, and salt; set aside.

  2. Cut each cantaloupe quarter in half lengthwise. Run a knife between the flesh and the skin of the melon; discard skin. Slice each wedge lengthwise into 1/2-inch pieces.

  3. Cut each avocado half again length-wise and then into 1/2-inch-thick slices. Add cantaloupe, avocado, and grape tomatoes to bowl with dressing and toss to coat. Divide among 4 plates.

    This was easy and delicious! Walnuts were a great item next to it for a healthy lunch.

    This salad is quick, easy, and delicious! I added walnuts which went really well. Basil, mint, or even just black pepper would be nice too. This is an instant favorite.
