  • 4 slices bacon
  • 1 cantaloupe melon
  • 4 green onions
  • 8 fresh basil leaves
  • Olive oil to serve
  • You can make this the easy way: just chop everything and combine! To mimic the presentation here, follow these steps:
  • Cook bacon until crispy. When done, set aside on a paper towel lined plate to absorb extra grease.
  • Cut the cantaloupe in half and scoop out the seeds. Cut into quarters. Slice each quarter into 4 – 5 slices and remove the rind from each. Fan out slices, divided between 4 plates.
  • Chop the green onion and chiffonade the basil leaves. Sprinkle over the melon slices. Once the bacon is cool enough to handle, chop finely and sprinkle over the plates.
  • Finish each plate with a drizzle of olive oil before serving.
