Essence of Summer Salad

July 11, 2010 § Leave a comment

This salad fully encapsulates the essence of summer: sweet, savory, and refreshing!  Perfect to pack for a summer beach day or to enjoy at the next BBQ.  The ingredients include watermelon and green onions, so if you love the sweet / savory combo, this one is for you!


1/4 of a medium size watermelon

1 bunch of radishes or 1 large cool cucumber

1/2 cup green onions

1 bunch of fresh mint

Olive oil


*Optional for non-vegetarians: 3 slices of crisped prosciutto cut into small pieces for sprinkling (this is optional and could be eliminated for a vegetarian salad)


I can’t make this one easier.  Chop all ingredients, mix together in a bowl, add olive oil and salt.  [Optional for non-vegetarians: Sprinkle with cut up prosciutto.]
