Good Thyme Gal Blog Summer Melon Salad

I don't know about you, but for me, Summer has a refreshing quality to it. I always welcome the season with great fondness and openness for adventure. Because we all know an adventure is best gone on in the Summer. Cookouts, shorts, burgers, and tank tops. Those things instinctively make me crave the warm weather.

Among cooking savory meats, during warmer weather days, I enjoy making dishes that are filling yet light. A side effect of that is my recipes are pretty nutrituous and healthy. Low in calories and delicious. I love a great Summer salad. I pity anyone who has not had the privilege to enjoy a salad. :

The best cookie I've had in years. Thank you! –Jane Williams
