RECIPE: THE PERFECT SALAD FOR A BBQ
This recipe comes from Smitten Kitchen, one of my favourite food blogs. It is sweet, savoury and makes for a perfect side dish for a summer BBQ. We're having a birthday party for my sister-in-law this weekend and this tasty salad is on the menu!
Watermelon and Feta Salad with Chopped Vegetables
