Today is the observance of Independence Day here in the U.S., so it’s a day off for Team MDK, all of whom we hope are lounging on inflatable animals in the stock tank pools of their dreams.
Traditionally we share a recipe. What with the heat and all, we are declaring a mandatory reduction in word count to conserve energy: no recipe shall exceed 4 words in length.
Constraint leads to creativity, so this recipe is a good one:
Four bonus words: Cool. Refreshing. Salty. Sweet.
Need more details? The internet abounds with watermelon/feta/mint recipes.
Here are but a few:
Ina Garten (Arugula alert!)
Serious Eats (Lemon zest!)
New York Times (Cucumbers? OK, Mark Bittman.)
Ottolenghi (Olives, preserved lemons, and an Ottolenghish assortment of herbs.)
And up top: Nigella Lawson, with olives and—eek!—onion.
You get the idea. Watermelon, feta, and whatever else you’ve got, and it will be delicious.
What’s your favorite 4-word summer dish?
