CANTALOUPE SALAD WITH HONEY VINAIGRETTE DRESSING & CANTALOUPE SPRITZER

CANTALOUPE SALAD WITH HONEY VINAIGRETTE DRESSING & CANTALOUPE SPRITZER

by chef Payton Curry, Flourish Kitchens and Exhale Dispensary


Since cantaloupe’s prime season is summertime in the U.S., Exhale chef Payton Curry chose to showcase a muskmelon salad followed by a juice spritzer in this month’s Cooking with Cannabis. This sunshine daydream is a great low-calorie start to get the morning off with a merry vibe. Curry used the cantaloupe’s leftovers for total utilization of the fruit for a mid-afternoon pick-me-up spritzer. It is vibrant, cool, and full of cannabinoids. The addition of the local bee pollen and Nevada honey allows for a lot of allergen relief for those who suffer from seasonal sniffles.


"You got married in Vegas so you Cantaloupe...." 1:1 Honey Vinaigrette recipe

2 Tbsp. fresh orange juice

1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice

1 Tbsp. fresh lime juice

1 tsp. dried chile flake

1/2 tsp. white truffle salt


Procedure:

Place ingredients for 1:1 honey vinaigrette dressing into a cleaned nug jar and screw lid on. Shake your day’s frustrations away knowing your cannabis cuisine is about to be consumed. Soon you will pour this over a bit of melon and have yourself a fresh bowl of muskmelon.

Please remember when cooking with medicinal cannabis you are cooking with a medicine and the medicine amount and portions of the food ingested should always be taken into consideration. Always start out with small portions or doses and wait 30 minutes to an hour before eating any additional portions of food that has been medicated.
