If you're looking for a light and refreshing salad – try this one! The flavor combination works really well: the slightly spicy arugula leaves, the soft sweet melon, and the creamy feta cheese – all seasoned with a super simple dressing.

I classify melon as the second-lowest fruit in the carbohydrate chart – the lowest being berries. A cup of diced cantaloupe contains about 11 net grams of carbohydrate, so although not super low, when mixed in this salad with everything else, the carb count balances out quite nicely. It's definitely possible for someone on a ketogenic diet to include cantaloupe in moderation!

If you want to know more about carbs in cantaloupe, check out one of my go-to resources, Nutrition Data. It's an excellent source of vitamin K, niacin, vitamin B-6, folate, magnesium, and potassium. And if you want to learn about carbs in fruit – check out my guide to Low Carb Fruit!

How to Make Cantaloupe, Arugula and Feta Salad

To a large serving bowl, add chopped cantaloupe melon, arugula leaves, halved cherry tomatoes, and finely chopped green onions. Toss the salad to mix well. Scatter some feta crumbles over the top.

To prepare the dressing, add white wine vinegar, olive oil, salt and pepper to a screw-top jar or similar, then shake to mix. Pour it over the salad just before serving.
