Happy Fourth

I hope you have a wonderful fourth of July.

Our prayers are with those who went through the Hurricane and the fires.

I have a nice summer salad recipe I would like to share with you. Nice and cool for a hot 4th of July.


Toss this salad just before serving so the fruit doesn't water out and dilute the dressing.

4  cups  cubed seeded watermelon

1/2   cup blueberries

1/4    cup honey

1 1/2  tablespoons fresh lemon juice

1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil

1/4 teaspoon of salt

1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

2 tablespoons of  freshly chopped mint

1. Place watermelon and blueberries in a medium bowl.

2. Combine honey and next 4 ingredients in a small bowl,stirring with a whisk. Stir in mint. Drizzle dressing over fruit;toss gently.

Serves 4 (serving size about 1 cup)

I hope you have a chance to make this nice cool summer salad for the 4th but if not it will be nice anytime during the warm weather. It also would make a nice desert. Also here is a tip for measuring honey. Coat your spoon or cup with cooking spray first and it wont stick.

Enjoy! Until next time. Carol
