So when you first walk into Trader Joe’s, there are, right inside the automatic doors, two big bins of whatever produce is usually on sale. Yesterday it was navel oranges and watermelons. And on the chalkboard attached to the watermelon bin, it said, “Watermelon! Delicious in a salad! Try it with peach salsa, basil and gorgonzola cheese!”
And I thought, “Um….OK. I’ll do that.” I always appreciate direction.
So I bought a watermelon, gorgonzola cheese, and a thing of Joe’s peach salsa (which I love anyway). Basil I already had in the garden. And today for lunch, I gave it a try.
And wow! Hey! This was a pretty awesome salad. I love the watermelon and basil together, and the peach salsa gives it a nice kick. To be truthful I am not a huge gorgonzola fan…I see the point of having the savory counterpart to the sweetness of the fruit, but if I try this again I will use feta cheese instead, and see if that’s more in line with my taste. Still, for a summer salad, this one rocked, and went perfectly with the little bit of grilled chicken I had leftover from last night.
Thank you Joe!!
