I will admit, I haven't lost any weight this summer. In fact I think I've gained a pound or two. In all my efforts to snack healthy during the day.. It all comes down to the Ben and Jerry's at bed time.. I also made the mistake of not doing summer camps with the kiddos which made tons of time to cross things off our summer bucket list, but also tons of time for impromptu ice cream and froyo stops..
But enough of my whining.. I"m hoping like heck that once school starts (less than a week to go -WOOT) the routine will get me back on track - fingers crossed.. In the mean time I wanted to share the recipe for this delicious salad.
The watermelon has been on sale as of late, so we've been stocking up. And I LOVE these crunchy english cucumbers.. the seeds are nearly non existent. A little olive oil, salt, pepper, and drizzle of lemon or lime juice is a super easy (and my favorite) way to dress a salad.
- 1/2 cup watermelon cubes or balls (I scooped these out with a round measuring (table) spoon.
- handful of grapes
- 1/2 cup sliced (English) cucumber
- 1/2 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
- 1/2 teaspoon lemon or lime juice
- salt and pepper
- basil leaves
Combine fruit and cucumbers. Drizzle with olive oil and (lime) juice. Season with salt and pepper. Stir to combine. Garnish with basil leaves.
I bet this would be so good with mint (instead of basil) and a little feta..
