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?

Eating My Way Through Boston

Let the adventure begin!

This Midwestern gal is off to Beantown in a matter of hours! I'm always concerned about dining out when I travel because I'm vegetarian by choice, and gluten-sensitive by bad luck.

For the next several days I'll be in Boston for work. (I was named Writer of the Year by Skyword, a content marketing company that keeps my writing schedule busy!)

Do you have any suggestions for healthy, whole foods dining while I'm on the East coast? I'm also open to a few pub suggestions. The hubby likes to consume his barley and rye in liquid form.... :)

If I can figure out my Blogger mobile app, I'll post a few pics from the road, er, restaurants!

Have a great weekend!

Until Next Time,
Choose Healthy!
