I always look forward late Spring because of the amazing produce that comes into season when the weather turns a bit warmer. Aside from my favorite local veggies such as Noonday Onions and Jacksonville tomatoes, I am a huge fan of berries and cantaloupe.
I came across this recipe a while back and thought it was a genius combination of flavors. Since we are in the middle of our Taste of Texas event, I revised the recipe a bit to include a popular Texas cheese from Brazos Valley, the Blueberry Havarti.
The best part is that it is very easy to put together with the cut fruit medleys and FRESH orange juice available in my department. It is a light and refreshing side dish for summertime and I hope that you will try it and enjoy it.
Fruit And Havarti Salad
2 cups strawberries, sliced
1 1/2 cups cantaloupe, cubed
1 cup blueberries

2 cups Brazos Valley Blueberry Havarti Cheese, cubed

2 Tbs olive oil
2 Tbs honey
2 Tbs basil leaves, chopped
Combine fruits and cheese in large bowl. Mix together orange juice, oil, honey and basil in a small jar with tight-fitting lid. Shake vigorously to combine. Pour over fruit and cheese; toss.
