Tomato and Watermelon Salad

Tomato and Watermelon Salad - Missalaneyus

This simple, 5-ingredient dish works best with peak season produce, so you should probably make it soon. Here, tomatoes and watermelon are plated together with a faint sprinkle of salt and pepper. Then, they’re topped with feta and a drizzle of arugula oil, which sounds fancy, but comes together in minutes.

Personally, I think this colorful salad would be perfect for a late summer dinner with your best girl friends. You could start with prosciutto and melon as an appetizer and then, for the main event, serve this salad with grilled chicken. I’d finish this light meal with chocolate bark and strawberries.

Happy Hour: Watermelon & Lime Cocktail

Miss Megan asked me to come up with a cocktail recipe for her blog, Crazybananas. She was thinking watermelon and lime, so I came up with a couple of options. We had a lot of fun testing both and discussing world issues. (Okay, we may have been gossiping.)

You’ll find our favorite recipe on her blog, a Vodka Limeade with Watermelon Ice Cubes, which is pretty delicious. The watermelon ice cubes are so fun and would be great in a non-alcoholic version if that’s your thing. I think kids would love them in lemonade.

Although the Vodka Limeade was our favorite drink, it didn’t seem right to keep the second recipe to ourselves, because it was also pretty tasty. This one uses the same ingredients, but in a different way. So, you could also try both this weekend and choose your own favorite. No judgement here. Continue reading
