still summer

with the kids back in school and the temperatures slightly dropping into the mid seventies, i don't want to give up on summer yet. so the food on our table has to make it work.

this "salad" definitely does it, we all feel wonderful and there is a hint of vacation still there. water melon, cucumber and feta cubes, toped with lemon zest and cut mint leafs, sprinkled with olive oil and sea salt. its just about all a summer dish needs to be.

i leafed through this book and discovered a few super simple summer dishes, which i will not give up yet, but keep putting them on the table. and the family as well as all the guests around the table love it.

Your salad looks so delicious and summery. We're in the 90's and humid here in New York. The kids go back to school on September 2nd so we have a few weeks to go still. It's going so quickly, it's hard to believe!! Enjoy your last days of summer!! xo
