A Simple Summer Salad.

I love my apartment, and I love summer, but gosh is it hot in my home right now. Once the weather gets warm, our place heats up and just never seems to cool down again until summer is over (the perks of living on the top floor, right?).  The idea of turning on the oven can just about send me into a fit of tears, so we’ve been eating a lot of quick, simple summer salads for dinner around here. My new favorite combination is can barely count as a recipe, it’s  just a few quick ingredients tossed together: baby arugula, cubed cantaloupe, chopped up prosciutto, crumbled blue cheese, salt and pepper, and a drizzle of olive oil, good balsamic, and lemon juice. Need a few more summer salad ideas? I included a list of some of my favorites below:

    Looks so yum Kate! Couldn’t agree more on avoiding the oven- though your last recipe you posted made me want to turn mine on 🙂

    This looks delicious, and sounds like it too. If you have heat, you can imagine how it is down here in central Florida! It is too hot to even fire up the grill! I love this combination, kind of a twist on proscuitto and melon!
