This is a refreshing and delicious salad for this season of plentiful fruit. The tang of the cheese and spark of the mint are great complements to the slices of melon and tomato. I sometimes cut the fruit into chunks as opposed to slices or slabs. I sprinkled the tomatoes with a little salt and the melon with a little lime juice before arranging them on the plate. Surprisingly, this salad keeps well. I made some for a big picnic last month and stored the leftovers in the fridge. While they yielded a lot of juice, the cheese blended well with the fruit

Dog days. Hot and sultry weather. Comes from the Roman idea that the Dog Star Sirius was too close to the sun and caused this despicable swelter. No matter. ASPCA will get on my case if I repeat the whole story. After working on the garden, it was time for something refreshing. How about this? Cube up a bunch of watermelon without the seeds, add a teaspoon or a tablespoon of sugar, the juice of a lime or two and whir it in the blender or food processor with a little ice. Lovely, tasty, cool.
