Minty Melon Salad
Let me tell you again! I am NOT a salad person! Its the weather which is making me feel like eating nothing other than some fresh fruits. On the flip side, I think this diet is going to last for a while. 😛
With this weather and weekend in the proximity I feel absolutely unproductive (a mental hi-five if you are with me) I have some serious work lined up for the weekend and I need to think about five, umm no! ten things that can charge me up.
1. Bruce Springsteen’s “I am on Fire”
2. A long drive (alone, by the way) on a traffic-less road and listening to rock ‘n’ roll.
3. Paint my nails, bright sunshine yellow or orange.
4. Watch “The Holiday” and eat vanilla ice-cream with piping hot chocolate sauce! See! I am actually feeling better, just the thought of it makes me dreamy. I mean both ice-cream and Jude Law 😛
5. Sleep with ridiculous number of fluffy pillows around.
7. Shop. Umm Didn’t I do that just last week? Doesn’t matter.
9. A surprise
10. Fresh Mint and Melon Salad.
Now we’re talking baby!
Just realized that two out of ten feel-good-factors above involve food! 🙂
This is a very quick recipe. It took me about 10 minutes. The flavors are absolutely refreshing.
Don’t get intimidated by the melon scoops. I like my salad pretty plus I had to do something to come out of my I-feel-so-unproductive-zone. You can very well, chop the melons into big chunks.
