The hubby and I started our day with a Whale Watch cruise on the Atlantic just off the Boston Harbor. During our cruise we spotted a 25-year-old whale named Satula diving and feeding near Jeffery's Ledge. We'd watch for the spout of water, then a few moments later a dorsal fin and finally the iconic scalloped whale tail would emerge. Amazing!
So, I know, this is a food blog--why am I talking about whales. Well, why not?
After watching Satula dine on a truckload of fish, we were hungry too. So, we ventured down Milk St. in Boston and stopped at The Granary for dinner. Since I'm vegetarian and gluten-free, it can be difficult to find restaurants with "safe" meals.
I was delighted when we browsed the menu at The Granary and spotted the watermelon salad. I took the plunge and decided to try it. It was fabulous! Chunks of bright red melon were sprinkled with thin slices of baby spinach, green onions, crumbles of white cheese and a lime-mint vinaigrette to die for. I never would think to put this combination together on my own, but it was amazing.
Have you ever had watermelon salad? What do you add to the melon?
