Colorado weather is schizophrenic in the spring. We swing from 71 degrees (like Sunday) to freezing temps (like today) where there is snow in the forecast!
When the weather gets warm, it starts making me think about SPRING and SUMMER and warm weather food. It’s that weather that we experienced on Sunday that inspired me to try this dish…
Yes, I know that it isn’t watermelon season. I was reminded of this as I was shopping for ingredients. It is not easy to find a good watermelon right now. I found some cut watermelon that worked for this dish and made it wonderful, and I know that it will be EVEN BETTER with a fresh farmer’s market watermelon in a few months! Can’t wait to make it again!
