15 Delicious Melon Recipes

9. Cantaloupe Crostini

How’s this for the perfect Labor Day appetizer?! Though the original recipe calls for herbed goat cheese, I decided to go with plain goat cheese and fresh tarragon. Fresh oregano would be great, too.


  • 1/2 Large baguette, cut into 1/4-inch thick slices
  • 2-3 Tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 Cup goat cheese
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons roughly chopped fresh tarragon or oregano(optional)
  • 1 Medium cucumber, thinly sliced
  • 3 Cups cubed cantaloupe

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly brush sliced baguette with olive oil. Arrange bread slices on a baking sheet, and toast in the oven for about 10 minutes, or until slices are golden brown. Let toasts cool for a minute or two.
2. Spread each sliced with goat cheese. Sprinkle on fresh tarragon. Arrange 1 slice of cucumber and 1 cube of cantaloupe on each toast. Serve at once.

I commented I think on this article. The recipes really didn't entice me but the watermelon did . I said now i have to buy watermelon the next day and boy did I .It was less costly to buy a whole medium one and I'm one person.

I'm going to peek at the recipes again but the fruit any way is the best.
