2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh mint
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
Pinch of salt
4 cups baby spinach
1 small avocado, (4-5 ounces), peeled, pitted and cut into 16 slices
16 thin slices cantaloupe, (about 1/2 small cantaloupe), rind removed
1 1/2 cups hulled strawberries, sliced
2 teaspoons sesame seeds, toasted (see Tip)
Whisk honey, vinegar, mint, pepper and salt in a small bowl.

Tips & Notes
Make Ahead Tip: The dressing will keep, covered, in the refrigerator for up to 1 day.
