Hi all, I’m so honored to be filling in for Amee today. There are a lot of things I love about being a food blogger; it requires me to bust out of my recipe comfort zone and get a little creative with my cooking, it allows me to embrace some of my kitchen successes and my failures, and it lets me take full advantage of taste testing opportunities. But, most importantly, the world of food blogging has also connected me with wonderful, talented, and creative individuals whom I draw so much inspiration from, like Amee.
This Honeydew and Cucumber Salad recipe gives us a little something to look forward to as the warmer weather starts to unfold. It’s also very green, which is nicely timed for St. Patrick’s Day!
Honeydew-Cucumber Salad Recipe
Featured recipe by McKenzie Hall Jones, RDN
Only six ingredients, this salad lends the taste of summer and sunshine during spring. Thankfully, most of us can find honeydew melon in our supermarkets almost year-round, but if you’d rather wait until honeydew are their sweetest, keep this recipe on hand as one to enjoy during the summer months. It’s a bit un-traditional, yet light, flavorful and fun.
