Summer Salads are the best.....

One of my favorite things about summer is making salads. It reminds me of all the salads my grandmother used to make when we would visit her at the beach on Cape Cod in the summer. I love all kinds.  Potato salad, macaroni salad, fruit salad - you name...I love it.  Well - my favorite this summer has been a recipe that I discovered in The Food Network Magazine.  I have served it over and over again - and everyone raves about it.  I made it for my parents tonight - so I thought I would share it because they loved it so much.  It literally can be pulled together in five minutes - which makes it even better.  So here is the official recipe from The Food Network.  I change it up every so often.  Tonight - I deleted the here it is - with of course, a coastal twist.  

Try it - this will become a summer staple for sure. And the best part is - you can mix this up with different ingredients....and it looks absolutely beautiful on the table.


Whisk 1 part white wine vinegar with 3 parts olive oil, and salt and pepper. Toss with baby arugula, red onion slices, watermelon cubes, crumbled feta, nicoise olives and fresh oregano.
