I had the most amazing salad on the cruise we took in May, and I couldn’t wait to get home to try and replicate it. It tastes amazing ice cold, which is something great in this heatwave Seattle is having, and great as mom in general since my food is always cold by the time I get to it.
I have a few sprigs of mint that has survived a few years on my deck despite my lack of watering, and I really need to buy just a few starters and plant them in a confined space in the yard because I know they can grow like weeds but I am keen to have a big harvest! I love mint, but after a few years of buying different varieties, I realized that spearmint is the most versatile – I have also tried chocolate mint ( kind of bitter) and pineapple mint (decent in mojitos). I lived off virgin mojitos last summer while I was pregnant, and I love shredded mint with watermelon – it makes it extra refreshing.
