I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Watermelon Salad

When your tomato haters are pleasantly surprised ... no tomatoes!

This salad is vibrant, refreshing and light with no oily dressing. Simply a little lime juice. A perfect hot summer evening salad!

4 cups cubed watermelon
1 mango, cubed
1 sweet red pepper, diced
3/4 cup kernel corn
16-18 asparagus spears 
1 small red onion, sliced
1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
4 basil leaves, finely chopped
4 mint leaves, finely chopped
black pepper to taste
2 tbsps lime juice

First prepare the asparagus. Lay the spears in a baking dish and pour boiling water over them. Leave them while you cut and chop the rest of the salad.

Toss everything together in a large bowl, then drain the asparagus and cut into 1 1/2" lengths. Add them to the bowl too, then chill.
May be kept refrigerated for up to 2 days, if there's any left!

Serves 6
