Sweet, refreshing, and slightly crunchy. This red, white (almost?), and blue salsa-like salad is perfect on chips or a piece of grilled fish and is a great healthy recipe for the 4th of July. Which, by the way, is next week.
Friday afternoon some of my girlfriends and their families came over for a backyard BBQ. The chickens were roaming around, the girls put on princess clothes and asked Gwendolyn about her trip to Disneyland, and we all relaxed on the lawn – it really felt like summer. My girlfriends all brought the most amazing side dishes. Ronda brought a salad with shrimp and Sarah brought a salad of Tuscan cantaloupe, watermelon, cucumber, and mint. It was so good I had to make a similar version the next night for dinner and to share with you.
I'm so glad you're here! I'm a busy mama to two sweet girls and a bunch of funny animals. I'm passionate about sharing the beauty of real food through plant based recipes. I hope you find many easy, nourishing, delicious recipes your family will love.
