If you live in most parts of the Northern Hemisphere, this is probably just what you need right now. A light and refreshing salad with fresh herbs and a jalapeño kick! Shaved Fennel and Melon Salad is quite easy to make and delicious to eat.
Unless, like me, you live in San Francisco… In which case we can totally enjoy all the benefits of this salad next month or something!
Karl the Fog will allow us to resume summer weather whenever he damn well pleases.
So, in the meantime, all of you regular weather people can enjoy a nice cooling salad, and I’ll just eat mine under a blanket.
It’s okay. I like blankets!
This salad is my ideal kind of summer weather fare – it requires no heat and comes together in a few minutes. It’s the type of food that feels especially invigorating after a potential overload on corn dogs and fries at the county fair, or chips and guac on the couch.
Fruits and veggies, you guys! Gotta do it.
And there is no reason they need to be boring.
I propose a new hashtag: #PutAJalapeñoOnIt. Everything is more exciting with jalapeño!
