Well, walking home from the bus today I got caught in a downpour. Actually the chain of events was this: 1. An emergency update on my phone about a flash flood warning for Pittsburgh (PS- that can happen?? Thanks, iOS6. I guess…); 2. A quick text to my roommate to tell her about the flash flood warning; 3. The wind howled, the skies opened up, and apparently Noah forget to tell me about his boat (though now I’m thinking of re-naming my phone Noah).
I made it home with a broken umbrella, wet jeans, soggy rain boots, and thinking, ” F you, Fall! Give me summer back!!” And that is when I remembered my stowed away watermelon. Yes, folks, Autumn has officially fallen, but Trader Joe is still cheerfully selling watermelons. So I decided to protest the change of the seasons with this delightfully end-of-summer-esqe salad.
– 1 1/2 cup fresh salad greens
– 1/4 cup watermelon, cubed
– 1/4 Tbs feta
– 1 lime wedge
– salt and pepper, to taste
1. Spread greens on your plate and squeeze lime over the greens evenly.
2. Add watermelon and feta
3. Add salt and pepper (optional). Note: be sure to check the sodium content of your feta before adding too much salt!
In the words of a famous Pittsburgh-ian*, “YUM!”
*The famous man is Tall One’s older brother, Taller One. When he was a little boy and would say bad words,Tall Mom would make Taller One lick a bar of soap, to which he’d reply, “Yum.” This is The Spatularette’s favorite quote.
