Pea, Melon and Feta Salad with Elderflower Vinaigrette


Colors play a fundamental role in my salads because the more colors there are, the salad tends to look more appetizing. Do you agree with me on this one? Just look at this orange, green and white combination. My fork will develop life of its own and dive into this beautifully-colored salad dish. And here's another thing - not only are the colors great, its tastes wonderful too because I used some elderflower vinaigrette to dress it. I have a weakness for floral and fruity aromas (like my eternal choice in white wines) like this one. What I really like about this salad is that the flavors are all mild and that they don't compete with each other so they blend quite smoothly.

  
When I was preparing this plate to take pictures of, my daughter was having her afternoon snack of melons. Not balls though, just regular cube slices which she pointed out to me. Of course, between cubes and balls, any kid would go nuts with the ball-shaped ones. And of course, like any other kid, she insisted to eat them in that shape exclusively rather than the regular ones. The problem was, she was faster in eating than my carving and dividing between the plate I was filling up and her plate that was always empty. In the end I was able to convince her that balls and cubes are much better than balls alone. She believed me. I won!
