Sliced wedges of seedless watermelon
Thinly sliced radishes, thinly sliced red onion (rinsed and dried), kalamata olives (chopped)
toasted pine nuts, fresh mint leaves (torn)
Prefer feta in brine (cow’s milk)
Combine ingredients lightly dressing with EVOO, Kosher salt and cracked pepper.
(Use just enough EVOO to glisten the vegetable mix, not saturate. Tasting each individual ingredient is important.)
A drizzle of balsamic syrup provides a little counterpoint and sweetness. (See “Prosciutto and Melon” recipe for balsamic syrup cooking instructions.)
Mound salad mix on top of watermelon wedges. Drizzle with balsamic syrup. Try this for your 4th of July cook out.
Another winner for your July 4th picnic is heirloom tomatoes, mozzarella di bufala, fresh basil, EVOO, Kosher salt, cracked pepper & balsamic syrup.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY USA.
