Grilled Fish with Spicy Cantaloupe-Cucumber Salad

I really do not like cantaloupe, but we got it in our CSA so I had to find something to do with it. I found this recipe with a Spicy Cantaloupe-Cucumber Salad and thought maybe spicy would make the cantaloupe something to look forward to. It was actually good. It makes me glad I didn’t just cut up the cantaloupe and make my husband eat it for breakfast.

2 T fish sauce
2 T lime juice

Cantaloupe-Yogurt Smoothie
I actually enjoyed this smoothie. I think I liked the creaminess the yogurt offered. After these two recipes maybe I’m ready to give Cantaloupe another chance.
