Summer Salad

Yah, I said it. I said perfect. This combo is sort of a home run. No, it's totally a home run. I love this salad. It doesn't matter how hot it is outside or how many beaches you've been to because it's just not summer until watermelon gets involved.

In whatever amounts you'd like, you'll need:

radish (optional)
red onion, chopped or sliced
mint, sliced or torn
chives, chopped
salt & black pepper

* I listed the ingredients in order of amount used, starting with the most prominent ingredient

You just cut the first four ingredients into rough one inch cubes, assemble them in any rectangular pattern you enjoy, sprinkle the herbs and red onion on top and finish with salt and pepper. 

Gotta love a bunch of summery ingredients that don't require extra flavoring. It's definitely my favorite part of this season-all the super fresh fruits and veggies--kinda makes you want to grow your own food, doesn't it? Or maybe have a picnic? This could be a great (well recieved) picnic salad, just cut the avocado right before you eat it. wham bam delicious! And on the topic of gorgeous ingredients from the ground I leave you with these wise words from a very smart fellow:

"Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants."

  1. i made a version of this summer salad...even though summer has not hit us here in the great northwest yet. It was delicious, simple and quite beautious...thanks for the always !

  2. This is such an artistically beautiful preparation. My first thought was who cares about the food, I just want to look at it. But I love watermelon, and this has to taste as good as it looks. Can't wait to try it.
