Cantaloupe Salami Salad
Barbara Nowakowski from North Tonawanda, New York needs just six ingredients to toss together this unusual salad. She serves it in the cantaloupe shells for summer brunches. "It's delicious and very easy to make," she says.
4 ServingsPrep/Total Time: 30 min.

- 1 cup cubed salami

- 1/4 teaspoon minced fresh marjoram
- Cut each cantaloupe in half; discard seeds and remove melon. Cut
