Dorothy Lamour’s cantaloupe salad

Mix the cantaloupe, peaches, apples, celery and nuts in a bowl. Set aside.


Whisk together the orange juice, shallot, salt, pepper and oil. Pour over the cantaloupe mixture and soak 30 minutes. Drain, then dress with the mayonnaise.

In effect, this is a Waldorf salad with the addition of diced cantaloupe and fresh peaches, with our updated vinaigrette. From “282 Ways to Make a Salad,” by Bebe Daniels and Jill Allgood (1950).
