Summer eating makes me so happy, fresh fruit, grilled meats, wine or beers out on the patio. All those fresh flavors make for some delicious short few months of eating.
Sweet, juicy watermelon is so often thought of as just a snack or dessert; but it is so good as part of a savory salad. Mixed with fresh tomatoes, creamy and salty feta, basil and a flavorful dressing. This is a salad meant to be eaten and served right. Leftovers aren’t as good, they get a bit too soggy.
