The perfect summer dish

Watercress salad with white peaches and watermelon.

This salad is the perfect summer dish. 

I mixed together 1 cup of watercress with two cups of red leaf lettuce and tossed everything with my new favorite dressing:

The peppery bite of the watercress went really well with the sweetness of the peaches and watermelon. 

This was a very light and refreshing salad. I will be sad when summer ends and this endless supply of juicy fruit ends.

Some creamy goat cheese would have been great in this salad but I resisted the urge to run to the store to pick some up.  And, yes, the eating down my pantry project continues...


  1. Wow what a great combination of flavors, this looks delicious! :)

  2. This looks delicious. I just found stonewall kitchen here at a market in the city. Love them.
