Food. Friends. Sunshine

I always love to eat salad but in the summer I basically eat salads all the time. There are so many incredible combinations of salads and I’m obsessed to try out lots of them. My latest salad obsession is this melon salad in endive boats. Its super fun to eat and tastes so fresh and delicious. It’s a great recipe for any lunch or dinner but also perfect  to serve as finger food when you have some friends over. The combination of melon, mint, cucumber, grains and endive is just such an incredible mix of sweet, fresh and bitter that is filling and so nutritious. When I eat this salad I feel the summer in my mouth!
