Re: Watermelon Salad

Jamie did a similar salad on one of his shows a long time back. I took notes when they were rerunning it a couple of years ago and tried it and the melon feta combo is just great!

Re: Watermelon Salad

I had a very similar salad in Helsinki, the base was lollo rosso, had some sunflower seeds too.

Re: Watermelon Salad

They do a similar salad in a small village in Sicily with raw squid and boiled sheep testicles.  Delicious!

I'm cutting myself off.  No, actually I'm turning off the puter, putting the wine glass away and switching to brandy to go with the ginger rice pudding I just took out of the oven.
