WE PARTNERED with Marshall Glashan and Café Paradisio for this month’s delicious recipe. The restaurant will feature this tasty appetizer, which they first introduced last summer. The Cool Watermelon and Mint Salad will be served over a bed of organic mixed greens, with feta cheese, drizzled with balsamic reduction and served in a martini glass – a delicious, easy-to-make, cool summer treat. Order this at Café Paradisio, then pick up the recipe card at Enjoy the Store and make it at home. Enjoy!
