This is an unusual combination, but suspend your doubts long enough to try it. Serve at room temperature for best flavor.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Rinse lentils well. Cook over medium heat, with enough water to cover by at least an inch, until boiling. Then reduce heat to a simmer, and continue to cook until lentils are tender, about 25-30 minutes.
  2. Drain lentils and let cool.
  3. Combine all ingredients in a medium sized bowl, mix very gently to combine.
  4. Serve at room temperature.

This sounds like such an odd combination, but it works. Delicious! I followed the recipe exactly. While the lentils were simmering, I prepared the rest of the ingredients. Once the lentils had cooled off I added them to the fruit mixture and sprinkled on a pinch of salt and a couple of dashes of cayenne.

I was skeptical, because lentils and cantaloupe really seemed like an odd combination, but this is DELICIOUS... I've made it two days in a row because I love it so much.
