Wow, it has been so long since my last post--four months to be exact! I've just been really busy working. I'm a chef at a vegan cafe and I love cooking and being around vegan food everyday! I am really very fortunate that I get to do something that I love for a living!
Anyway, last year for the 4th of July I made an elaborate spread, but this year since I only have a few days off I wanted to keep it simple. Hubby and I are just grilling some vegan dogs and I made this really delicious melon salad that I wanted to share with you.
You can use any type of melons--just make sure that you add all the other ingredients to give it lots of crunch and plenty of spice. I guarantee that if you take this to your next BBQ, or picnic that people will devour it in no time. Plus it's really beautiful to look at!
For my salad I used a combination of: cantaloupe, watermelon, jicama, English cucumber, white corn, jalapeno, mint, lime juice, cayenne pepper and salt and pepper. Cilantro would be a good addition too. Just so fresh--I could eat this everyday during the summer months!
Until my next post--Happy 4th everyone!
