sweet and salty

It would be fascinating to take a census of the number of picnics happening simultaneously around the country this weekend and what they would be serving. One thing I know I will be making is a watermelon feta salad. If you haven't tried this combination of flavors, you don't know what you're missing. The recipe is extremely simple. Just cut up a seedless watermelon into cubes or square slices...add some crumbled feta. I like to lay it out on a platter and drizzle it with olive oil and some fresh lime juice. Then sprinkle some fresh thyme over the top. I've heard where people add black olives or sliced red onions or even basil. I like to serve it next to some greens.

YUMMMMMMMMMMM!!!! Let's see...things are a bit different here in terms of 4th of July food, but we're taking off for Cameron Highlands -- about 3.5 hours north of KL. I am definitely packing some watermelon for the drive!

I have tried this before and it is sooooo good. I do orzo salad. Easy and good.

It does look so... good! Being that we are a lake community there will be a lot of activities around the lake and a whole lot of grilling!!! Enjoy. xoxo
