A Fruity Seasonal Salad for you & me!

This lovely delicious salad I created a few weeks ago. We came back after a long weekend away & what were e going to eat? We watched in our garden, fridge & pantry & I came up with this:

This was super delicious!

Recipe: For 4 persons

Ingredients:

1 ripe cavaillon melon, peeled, deseeded, cut up into parts

organic smoked ham, thinly sliced

3 fresh big juicy tomatoes, from the garden, sliced

a big handful of fresh blueberries, from the garden

2 handfuls of fresh red currants, from the garden

fresh strawberries, from the garden, each hulled & cut up into 2 to 4

big bunch of fresh salad leaves, like friséé, rocket, red roach leaves, … straight from the garden, well washed & spun dry

a fruity extra virgin olive oil

Method:

  1. Take 4 large plates & place a mix of the fresh salad leaves in the middle of each plate. Arrange about 3-4 tomato slices on the outside of the salad. In the middle, you place 2 -4 melon slices. Arrange the smoked ham slices loosely on top of them.
  2. Place your strawberry pieces & blueberries around the plate, the way you like it! πŸ˜‰ Scatter your red currants on the plate too, but not too much! You don’t want too much sourness on your plate! Just before serving, drizzle a few drizzles of that fruity extra virgin olive oil all over the top of each plate! Enjoy with loved one’s! MMM! πŸ™‚

  3. Wow Sophie!! this looks so scrumptious! Love all the fruits with the salty ham. And– you’re growing strawberries?? Are they difficult to grow? And–where was your weekend away?? Did you have a relaxing time? hugs hugs from here.

    1. Strawberries are easy to grow here in Belgium. Now, the season is nearly over. We went wining & dining in a 1 Michelin starred restaurant in Sankt Vith, In the German speaking part of Belgium! Soon, I will write about it + photos! But here on Google maps, i already reviewed them with many photos too: https://goo.gl/maps/1GnqKTEmyCP2
