Watermelon Salad

What you need: Watermelon, 1 1/2 cups per person Crumbly cheese like feta or goat Olive Oil Salt + Pepper My grandfather always put salt on his watermelon, telling me it made it sweeter. In his honor I give you this salad. For me this is summer on a plate. Dice your watermelon into bite sized pieces, i prefer larger chunks. Arrange a nice pile of melon on your plates. Top with a nice dose of crumbly cheese. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, then put a light gulg of the olive oil over the dish. Vola! You can make this in a large bowl too, but I like making a special plate for each person.

Heirloom Tomatoes Baked with Feta + Herbs

What you need: 2 large heirloom tomatoes 2 – 4  oz of feta cheese 2 teaspoons chopped basil, or other herb Olive Oil Salt + Pepper Heat your broiler. Cut the tomatoes into ½ inch thick slices and overlap them in a shallow baking dish. Crumble the cheese over the top, sprinkle with half the thyme, and drizzle with olive oil. Broil until the cheese begins to brown and the tomatoes are warm, about 7 minutes. Remove from the broiler. Sprinkle with the rest of the thyme. Have a light hand with your salt (feta is very salty)  and pepper to taste!
