Summer is in full swing and our family loves nothing more than refreshing easy meals and side dishes served alongside cold drinks. Today we are sharing an amazing combination of fruits and cheese that we are pairing with our favorite summer beverage, Arnold Palmers. These are the perfect selections for a summertime BBQ or along side a simple grilled piece of fish or chicken. We can’t wait to share these summer inspired dishes with you.

How can your resist all these amazing summer fruit and herbs just waiting to be melded together in a simple but elegant salad. I used a melon baller instead of cutting the cantaloupe into squares, but do what is easiest for you. This salad consists of fresh cantaloupe, peaches, fresh mozzarella balls, mint, basil and prosciutto.

Just mix all the fruits together, whisk a super simple dressing and lunch or a side salad is ready to eat. My kids were not huge fans of this, but I gobbled it up. It’s light and refreshing and reminds me of a simple appetizer of melon wrapped in prosciutto.

Don’t you just want to bite into this mixture of basil, mint, peaches, cantaloupe and fresh mozzarella?

Super easy Green Tea Arnold Palmers

My kids’ favorite summer beverage is a mix of lemonade and iced tea in a tall glass filled with ice. For summer entertaining, simply buy liters of FUZE® Tea (we found the green ginger variety), 2 liters of Minute Maid® Lemonade and fresh fruit from Food Lion.

Fill your glasses with ice and fill them half with the lemonade and half with iced tea. Could not be easier than that!

  1. Omg can we say yum?!?! Any excuse to eat mozzarella gets two thumbs up from me!!! Must try!

  2. IT is sort of like the appetizer that you wrap Italian Hams around melon…

  3. Wow. That is an interesting salad. I have never tried mixing fruit (especially the pulpy ones) with mozzarella. I will make this salad and I am sure I will enjoy this. I love melons, my husband loves peaches and both of us enjoy mozzarella. Win.

  4. This looks super tasty! Love summer and the bright, light flavors it brings!

  5. I used to hate fruit in my salads, but am coming around to the idea. Had one the other day with oranges and loved it!

  9. I could really go for a fruity salad like this! That mozzarella must be really good with those summery flavors!
