Cantaloupe, Red Onion & Walnut Salad

In Sardinia, melon and watermelon often find their way into salads. Watermelon is used most commonly, but I find it's easier to get food cantaloupe year-round. This is super fresh tasting, and because I always like a little crunch in my salads, I've added some toasted walnuts. Sometimes, I add grated pecorino cheese to this as well!
