Mondays With Michelle: Rain, Rain Go Away... Summer Salads Are Here To Stay!

Hello foodie friends!

I don’t know about you but this lousy gloomy weather has got me missing summer big time! What happened to beautiful sunny afternoons sitting outside on a patio enjoying a cool beverage and a delicious snack? Or summer barbecues? I know kids are back in school and that is the unofficial end to summer for lots of folks, but I’m not ready to let it go just yet!

One thing I love about summer is all the fresh, juicy, delicious produce that is available (we should still have a little bit left if the rain doesn't ruin it!). One of my new favorite summer dishes is a super delish and refreshing Watermelon Salad that I first tasted at Marlow’s during their “Red, white and Brew” menu. Of course I recreated at home because I loved it so much.

This summer salad is incredibly easy to make, and may just bring you some sunshine on these rainy days. Check out the recipe below.
