Happy Monday everyone! I hope you guys had a wonderful weekend! This being the middle of July (better known to us grilling enthusiasts as “National Grilling Month”) and all, I thought that the best way to let summer shine was to prepare one of my favorite summertime salads. What is so spectacular about this salad, is that it can be served either warm or cold … making it perfect for leftovers. Even better, it highlights one of my favorite flavors of summer: melon! Sweet … sweet melon! Along with showcasing this salad, I want to showcase some of my favorite summertime grilling tools!
