Whales and Watermelon Salad

June 22, 2013 was pretty fabulous.

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?

Until Next Time,
Choose Healthy!

  1. Hi Angela,
    Lovely salad! I really like that you added a personal touch to this post. I've always thought blogging should be a little personal even if we have a main topic. Thanks for stopping by today :)

  3. I just eat mine plain to tell you the truth. But I'd be up to try something new if I saw it on the menu.

    1. I usually just slice or cube it too. But, now I'm intrigued to find out what flavors pair well with it. That lime vinaigrette was perfect -- very refreshing!

  4. It's too bad you don't eat fish. Boston has fabulous fresh fish. No, I've never had watermelon salad, but it looks good!

    1. HI Jolie -- I know! I guess growing up in the Midwest with no access to fresh seafood is part of the reason also. It felt weird not having a bowl of "clam chowdah". LOL! But I still found lots of delicious things to eat! ~Angela
