Watermelon ~Feta Salad~

The first time I was introduced to this duo..I loved it..
I have made a few salads  with both..even incorporating  greens..like I did here..and the watermelon was cut in rounds..I have loved making the watermelon balls also..but a lot of loss..

Served in parfait glasses though... oh so pretty!

But when I spied this way of presenting a  favorite ..I had to try ~The colors..displayed this way..spoke to me~
She had such  a cute presentation..looked like a quilt to me..When I made it my husband said:" Lucas would play a game with it"..I guess:)  Those two play chess together..:)



I used my ordinary dressing for the combo..next time will add avocado:) The green   is even prettier..a trio:)

I use..
Olive oil~
Lime juice~
Salt
Mint..lots:)

I also love basil..but usually w/ this..I use mint~
It's so pretty served this way..and watermelon is so good for us!

Speaking of colors..Carol..inspires me..I took my traveling paints out..and did what she suggested.
I think they are my greatest works of art yet:)
I did my small W/N pocket set..My Koi..pocket set..and my Cotman W/N studio filed set..Now in my little journal..this one..I will have samples..true ones..of my colors~

So nice to be inspired.
If you go to my link..you will read and see in depth:)~
I love it when I see a blogger I love..post something that makes me get up and do it:)
This..I knew I could try:)

Well..I mean..these ..I knew I could try~
P.S.
Sam is right:)

  2. That's adorable. To me it looks like a child's small checkerboard. What a clever presentation idea. I bet the avocado is pretty with it too.

  8. What a wonderful presentation! I've done the salad but never thought of trying this. I believe one has to have an artistic bent to do it right.

    Best,

  19. Monique, such a beautiful presentation of a lovely salad. Your pictures as usual are exquisite. I have heard lots of good things about this type of salad, but have never yet tried it. You are inspiring me. Love the pages with your water colour squares on it. I am so longing to get into my studio and paint. I will be happy to have the workmen out and my home back to myself! Love you lots my sweet friend. Sorry to be late in commenting on your posts . . . but my time has not really been my own with so much disruptions going on. xxoo
