Cantaloupe Cherry Tomato Salad In Radicchio Cups | Salad Recipes
I am making lots of salads now a days for snack time as H is a big salad lover and tend to end up making salads most of the time for him.I love to explore with new kind of fruits and veggies available here and in our recent visit to grocery H found this red color lettuce type veggie and wanted me try this in salads. So On his request I tried this new veggies which is called radicchio , I have heard the name for the first time , I made this amazing salad and dished the salad on the radicchio edible cups, H just loved the way I presented and he joint the salad as well. Radicchio is also called as italian chicory and it is a leafy veggie like lettuce they look. I make cantaloupe salad often , back in india when ever we used to get a musk melon the traditional way at our was to dice them sprinkle with generous amount of sugar chill them and have them. But I have been exploring few salads with cantaloupe too which taste yummy. Moving on to this innovative salad in a edible cup :)..
