Ingredients

For the vinaigrette:

2 tablespoons chopped cilantro

1 teaspoon grated ginger

1/2 cup honey

Zest of 2 limes

5 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice

1 tablespoon Maggi sauce


For the skewers:

6 cups seeded and cubed ripe watermelon

About 12 ounces tomatillos, husks removed, rinsed, and thinly sliced (about 3 cups)

1 large package (about 8 ounces) of small fresh mozzarella balls

To Prepare

To make the vinaigrette: Place the cilantro, ginger, honey, lime zest and juice, and Maggi sauce into a large mason jar and shake vigorously to emulsify. Alternatively, place all of the ingredients in a bowl and whisk to emulsify.

To make the skewers: Slide the watermelon cubes, tomatillo slices and mozzarella balls onto wooden toothpicks or small plastic skewers, alternating between each ingredient. Serve with the lime-honey vinaigrette as a dipping sauce.

tri-color salad

Yesterday, right after my blog turned 1 year old, I added a new category under Ingredients: Cheese.

This site is a continuous work in progress. As my husband notes, it is very time consuming, but as I always respond, it is immensely rewarding. Truth is, I can’t wait to keep on adding more.

That was our dog, the bluebird, snails, butterflies and ladybugs that happened to peek into our backyard and witness our extravagant mess. It also included any family friend who happened to stop by and become a willing victim. We sometimes offered cooking classes too.

My mother set us up in the backyard on a big blanket with random pots and pans, while she cooked laborious weekend meals. There was a fig tree, an apple tree, a peach tree, a couple of what we called Chinese orange trees and tons of azaleas and herbs that offered an immense array of witch-crafting material. But among our most prized ingredients were dried jamaica flowers, known here as hibiscus flowers, stored in a big jar in the kitchen.
