Watermelon Salad with Mint

Watermelon Salad with Mint

A good friend of ours, who we think has a secret watermelon farm somewhere, has been gifting us with these humongous, beautifully red and sinfully sweet orbs once a week for the past three weeks.

This is the second version of my Fresh Turnip Salad experiment. This time, instead of keeping the greens raw, I briefly cooked them by steaming them with just the moisture from washing them. I cooked them over high heat until they were wilted and most of the water has evaporated. I did not add any…

Fresh Turnip Greens Salad – RAW

Fresh Turnip Greens Salad – RAW

I remember my dad used to eat raw mustard greens with fried fish. All he did is tear them and dip the leaves in fish sauce (bagoong) and that was it! It was spicy and somewhat refreshing at the same time. I wasn’t too crazy about it though. To me it was equivalent to biting…

Grilled & Ready Chicken GIVEAWAY

Technically, it’s spring time in the Carolinas but already we’ve had some summer like weather that made us want to pull out the grill. We’ve been so busy working on the garden though that we haven’t had time to pull out the grill and get some charcoals. Luckily, I was asked to review this Tyson…
