I'm back baby! (said me, not the watermelon salad)
How is the weather where you live, and do you want to talk about it, and then talk about the weather where I live, and how awesome it is, and how it is record-breaking? OK. During the entire month of July it didn't rain once, and it was sunny and hot and beer weather every single solitary day. So far in August, there has been just one day of rain to freshen up all of the flowers again, and then we were right back into this sensational sun-shiny summer streak! And since Vancouver has a relatively high latitude on Planet Earth, it means that we are getting about 16 hours of sunshine per day, with a quick 8-hour break for sleeping. Also, I have a tan. Well, I have a tan on the front of my body anyways, but if you were to pick one side, wouldn't it be the front side?
|I'm getting to the part about the watermelon salad soon...I promise.|
And none of this has anything to do with the recipe that I am posting today, which is for a Watermelon and Feta Salad that I made about three months ago but never got around to posting, but that doesn't matter. This was made during my girls weekend away in Sechelt, during a newspapers-spread-all-over-the-table outdoor crab feast where we knew we would want a light, juicy, summery salad on the side to help wash down the bowl full of melted butter that we were using as a dip for our crab.
We went to a seafood shop that day, bought our three crabs, and got a lesson on how to clean and cook them, with an interactive portion of our visit where my friend Cleary actually cleaned two of the crabs herself in the back room of the seafood shop.

Summer and watermelon are pretty much boyfriend and girlfriend...
