Sometimes kids who come over are uncertain of the strange things that we make. When my niece and nephews came over for dinner on Friday night, we were interested to see how they would respond to dinner.
I roasted carrots and halved mini potatoes in one pan and some fresh dill-covered salmon fillets in another.
For the salad, we made this:
RECIPE: Watermelon Salad
1 small watermelon, cubed
1/2 bunch fresh mint, chopped
1/2 bunch fresh basil, chopped
1 large container of feta, rinsed, squeezed dry, and crumbled
> mix all the ingredients in a large bowl
> gets better as it sits; can make it up to 4 hours ahead of the time it should be served
> serve & enjoy
And the kids - how did they like it? Every one of them had seconds, and most had thirds of the salad. The ones who did not have thirds were so full from dinner that they could not even have a last sip of water.
