This sudden spring-summery-hot weather makes me feel like a kid again. I’m longing to play hopscotch, jump rope, whirl a hula hoop, throw a ball against a wall and chalk-draw on the sidewalk. I’m picturing peddle-boating, row-boating or sitting calmly in the bow of a canoe, staring at waterlilies, looking out for frogs and minnows, dragging my fingers through the still water and listening to the birds cutting through the silence.

I’ll have to settle for summery salad until I can beg, borrow or steal a grandchild to bring me back to those old pastimes. Perhaps a sojourn in the country will transport me back to those easy-breezy days. I’ll bring the Spinach Watermelon Strawberry Salad.

Assemble spinach, cucumber, onion, strawberries, watermelon and radicchio. Garnish with almonds and mint leaf chiffonade. Combine dressing ingredients. Serve the dressing on the side or pour over a large bowl of gently tossed salad ingredients.

The dressing is perfect–tart and sweet. The juicy watermelon makes dinner taste like dessert.
