Watermelon Salad

Death has outrun us as it always will; and it outlived us as it always has.


Rosa Bianca. From my garden


So let’s not summon this inevitably deadly guest Death with a nuclear war. Let’s turn our severely bizarre, Raven-black, voodoo talks-wishes-thoughts for the enemy into a beautiful prayer.


Joy of Gardening!


And ……. let’s make a fantastic Watermelon Salad. It is a Summer-time salad as pleasantly chilled as Arctic ice. As gently flavored as the Camellia-kissed summer breeze kissing the Eldorado cascades.





½ a Watermelon

Salt to taste

Juice from 1 Lemon/Lime

1 tbsp Olive Oil

Handful fresh herbs, e.g. Basil-Mint-Scallion

Handful toasted Sesame seeds



Cut Watermelon flesh into 1cm chunks

Gently combine chunks with salt, lemon juice, olive oil. Put in the fridge for about 30 minutes

Right before serving sprinkle toasted sesame seeds and fresh herbs


Watermelon Salad


Killing innocent lives, bombarding humanity has never been nor will it ever be a solution as Allah SWT warns the transgressors saying:

These are the bounds, the limits set by Allah. Do not then transgress them for who transgress them are evil doers. [Surah Al-Baqarah (2): Ayah 229]

  1. Nusrat, the watermelon vendors are out in force here (yay!) and your salad flavors are sure to elevate this summertime treat. Your lovely photos and poignant thoughts are the perfect place setting, too. I do more thinking (and thanking) over food. A blessing! Yes, this world is a crazy and sometimes violent, senseless place, but we can attempt to change that one gentle heart and home at a time. Yours are both beautiful. xo
