I never would have thought to put cantaloupe in a salad like this but it worked wonderfully! We used blue cheese instead of feta because it's what we had on hand, but that also worked well. A filling dinner salad that tasted fresh and healthy!

I was surprised by how good this was! And quite filling. We made it in winter, but I'd bet it's even better in summer.
