Cantaloupe Tomato Salad with Herb Dressing

I am always striving to create unusual salads and this is one combination you might not think about putting together.  The sweet cantaloupe combined with vine-ripened tomatoes and a hit of red onion, topped with a citrus honey herb dressing is the perfect salad to serve along side grilled chicken, fish or shellfish.   A crumble topping of feta sets this salad apart from all others.  A feast for the eyes and your taste buds!
