If you follow me on instagram then you know I’m all about easy salads for summer time. The last thing I want to do is hang out in the kitchen when it’s gorgeous outside, so that means everything we eat is either grilled or simple and fresh.
Or peanut butter and jelly if you are little man, since he is the pickiest eater alive.
We have this amazing downtown indoor/outdoor farmers market about 25 minutes from us in Grand Rapids. If you are local and haven’t been, you need to check it out! I head there every Thursday and plan our whole weekend menu around what’s fresh and delicious there that week. No plan or menu in mind, just whatever I find that looks good. Which usually means about a pound of amazing types of cheese, fresh baguette, a great piece of fish and some fruit and veggies.
Ok that all sounds a bit too healthy I should mention that every week my little man and I split a banana nutella crepe while we wander around :)
Last week they had the most amazing prosciutto that I picked up so I made this easy Melon Prosciutto salad – it’s so good and crazily simple! Ready for the recipe?
Fresh, easy and perfect for summer!
