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!

Thanks for the comment on my blog about the marshmallow treats. If you do send them to your daughter at school be sure to seal them very well. My hubby happened to leave the lid a bit loose and they got a tinge stale. Argh! I hope she likes them!

I love fruit salads :) I wonder if it would work with tofu....

First of all, thanks for stopping by my blog.
I think Garam Masa would be an acceptable substitution. They both have cumin, which is a "dominant" spice because of the strong aroma and flavor (that's why I love cumin =D), and they are not especially hot. Most of Garam Masalas have cinnamon in it, and apple with cinnamon is a winner combo :) What's more, I think that Garam masala would have tasted even better in this dish xD

Have fun! =)
