Watermelon and Mint Salad

In honor of the on-going Dog Days of Summer (here at our house, we use 75% more energy <thank you, A/C> at our house in July and August. I’m keeping the oven off and the food tasty.

This is perfect for your lunch or BBQ and did I mention EASY?!!

What to gather:


Fresh Mint

Blue Cheese

Sea Salt (optional)

What to do:

Cut watermelon into bite-size chunks.

Julienne mint.

Cut (or crumble) blue cheese into small pieces.

Toss it all together with a pinch of sea salt RIGHT before serving. (Adding it too early will make the watermelon mealy…and we HATE that!)

So easy..and so good. I did take pictures this time, but they went into the ether…I can not recover them. Call it occupational hazard of blogging. Never mind..you won’t care once you taste this gem.
