Melon and Goat Cheese Salad

Robin Lieneke


I often throw this refreshing fruit salad together in the summer when melons are at their peak of sweetness. It's super simple and quick. It's very versatile and you can use any fresh fruits you like along with the melon. I love it so much I make it just for me and I think it would pair perfectly with a chicken salad croissant for a refreshing lunch
