Long Overdue

I know that a new post is way way overdue. It has been a busy summer in my household! Though it is not quite over yet I thought I should at least "throw you a crumb" and let you know I am still around. I promise to give you a more complete explanation of my absence and resume more regular posting soon!

This is one of those "Hmm?" recipes. I really was not sure that I was going to like it when I saw it but it made me curious enough to give it a try. The great thing is you can make just a little bit and try it out before committing to it. It might not suit all tastes but I would encourage you to be adventurous and give it a go! The measurements are a guideline and not really specific. I am not usually a "less it more" kind of girl but in this recipe that is the approach you should take. It's about complimenting and making the flavor POP!

This makes a beautiful salad for a starter or even a very light dessert. I just love to eat it for a snack!

Watermelon-Feta Salad

4 cups cubed watermelon

4 oz crumbled Feta cheese

2tbs Balsamic vinegar

1 tsp Olive oil

4 Tbs fresh shredded basil

Place 1 cup watermelon each, in individual serving bowls. Whisk together Balsamic vinegar and olive oil. With a teaspoon, drizzle over top of watermelon. Distribute feta evenly between bowls and top with Basil. You can also replace half (or all ) of the basil with fresh mint for an extra zing!
