Melon and Cucumber "Noodle" Salad with Mint

In a large bowl combine dressing ratios of: olive oil, white wine vinegar, honey, lime, a handful of thinly sliced mint leaves, salt, and cracked pepper. Whisk together. Aim for about 1/3 cup of dressing, on the tangy side. Cube half a ripe cantaloupe and add to the bowl. Either with a vegetable peeler or a spiralizer, create long "noodles" from one cucumber. A spiralizer will create a more consistent spaghetti shape, while a vegetable peeler will make "rustic" fettuccine style shreds. Either works! Add the noodles to the bowl and toss everything together. Let the salad marinade for 30 min - 1 hour in the fridge. Sprinkle with a little more chopped mint and serve.
