Summer Is (Not) Over
Hello everyone – happy Monday!
Can you believe it’s almost end of August? Also, can you believe it’s only three weeks until the official start of fall? Who is exacted? I am exited as I really love early autumn. I think I can already feel fall vibes in the air. But as I’ve said few times, you won’t see fall apples and pumpkin for a while on this blog. While I’ve been already transitioned to testing and photographing apple recipes, I am not giving up on summer ideas.
Without further ado, let’s enjoy another summer recipe. Isn’t it this Watermelon Lavender Salad pretty?
Watermelon Lavender Salad
I love a good watermelon salad, and I’ve already shared two other similar ideas this season. Watermelon Feta Salad and Melon Lavender Mint Salad. As you can see, this last recipe is basically an identical idea. Melon and lavender are a good pairing, but I think it works even better with watermelon. There’s something lovely in the combination of natural watermelon sweetness and a subtle herbal aroma.
If the watermelon isn’t too sweet, a little drizzle of honey would help. If your watermelon is too sweet, you can use a little of lime or lemon juice instead. Easy-peasy!
I hope you like this salad, and you will give it a try while the watermelon season lasts. If you make it, let me know in this post or send me an Instagram message or share you photos adding the hashtag #havocinthekitchen.
Watermelon Lavender SaladCourse: Salad
This Watermelon Lavender Salad with an addition of mint is refreshing and delightful. Perfect idea for hot summer days. Serves 2 as the main dish or 4 to 6 as a side or appetizer.
4 cups chilled watermelon (small chunks, cubes, or balls)
1/4 cup fresh mint leaves, roughly chopped
1/4 tsp. fresh lavender buds or 1/8 tsp. dried lavender buds, minced
optional: a little drizzle of honey or lemon (lime) juice
- In a bowl combine the watermelon with the mint and lavender. If using, add the honey and lemon (lime) juice. You can serve right away, but I recommend chilling it for an hour, to allow the flavours to mingle. Enjoy!
