Yields4 Servings
Ingredients
 4 cups Cantaloupe, balls
 2 cups cherry tomato, cut in half
 1 ½ cups cucumber, small dice
 ½ cup feta, crumbles
 ¼ cup mint, fresh, chiffonade
 4 oz Basil Oil
Basil Oil Ingredients
 2 oz basil, fresh, blanch, shock
 1 cup oil
Preparation
1

Bring water to boil. Once the water is boiling add the fresh basil and boil for about 2 minutes or until the basil leaves are soft.

2

Remove from the boiling water and place the basil into ice cold water to stop the cooking process.

3

Take the basil and squeeze the water/liquid out of it until dry in cheesecloth or in between paper towels.

4

Place the blanched basil into a blender with 1 cup of oil. Blend for about 4 minutes. The oil will be bright green with no chunks of basil. Strain in fine strainer or cheesecloth.
