perfect summer salad...

via a house in the hills.

1 bunch watercress
2 cups cubed watermelon
1/4 cup pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
1/8 cup grapeseed oil
2 tablespoons lime juice
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
2 tablespoons finely chopped cilantro
1 teaspoon maple syrup
1/2 lime

- if possible make the dressing in advance by combining the grapeseed oil, lime juice, sea salt, cilantro, and maple syrup.  i added one extra solid pinch of salt at the end too, but taste and season to your preference!
- rinse and dry the watercress, combine in a large serving bowl with the watermelon and toss with the dressing.
- in a skillet toast the pepitas over medium heat with the juice of 1/2 lime and a solid pinch of salt
- add pepitas to salad and serve!

and a drink to go with it...

love sent, xo
