There is something so satisfying in helping others out. This week for the Secret Recipe Club – Group D reveal, April needed an extra hand to make something from an orphaned blog and she asked if I would do it. Usually I get it made super fast, but we were gone all morning and I didn’t get it until late afternoon and poor April is sick, and yeah…so I’m just getting to it now. I hate that this blog was abandoned for so long. I hope you’ll also come back and visit me on Monday for my Group A reveal.
Shari from The Saucy Gourmet is the blog that I was asked to fill in on. I wish I had more time to create something from her. There were dozens of really tempting recipes. Since I knew I didn’t have a lot of time I had to ignore some of her more time consuming dishes, no matter how much I wanted to make them.
I fell in love the moment I found her very simple Watermelon with Mango and Lime. It wasn’t so much that it was easy that was appealing, it was that I was looking for a side dish to serve with dinner tonight and I just so happen to already have sliced mango and some limes, I just needed a Watermelon. Easy since the store is right next door.
I made it exactly how she did, the only change I made was to add a lime coconut “dressing” or cream to it. It was fabulous, easy and fresh. The perfect addition to dinner.
I topped each salad with a slice of sugared lime. They all enjoyed it very much!
