Strawberry-Cantaloupe Salad with Marshmallow Dressing|
I have to admit to being a bit skeptical of my husband's liking for cantaloupe and marshmallow cream, but it actually is surprisingly good. Add some strawberries and a few more simple ingredients and it becomes great! You can also skewer the melon and berries and use the sauce as a dipping sauce rather than making it a salad.
1 large ripe cubed cantaloupe
1 pint hulled and halved strawberries
3/4 cup marshmallow cream
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed orange juice
Freshly grated zest from one orange
Toss together the cantaloupe and strawberries in a large bowl. In a small bowl mix together the marshmallow cream, orange juice, orange zest, and salt until smooth. Pour over the cantaloupe mixture. Serve immediately, or chill for up to 6 hours before serving, tossing well before serving.
Makes 8 servings.
