I love a refreshing watermelon salad in the summer with salty feta and fresh mint. I decided to deconstruct the basic ingredients into a finger food for outdoor summer parties. For more photos and details check out my post today for Better Homes and Gardens.
Happy Summer Entertaining!
I feel like I’ve been seeing Overnight Oats and Chia Pudding everywhere on blogs lately, and so I thought I’d do a combo of the 2! It’s a perfect warm weather breakfast. You simply combine Almond Breeze Milk, rolled oats, chia seeds and mashed banana in a jar and refrigerate it overnight (or for about 6 hours). In the morning you have a creamy, vitamin packed, chilled porridge to eat with fruit. It’s also an easy on-the-go breakfast to take to the office! Just add fresh fruit to the jar and grab a spoon.
I have been getting so much gorgeous summer melon in my CSA farm box, that I served mine in a half of a cantaloupe. And because we have blackberries growing off the back deck, I topped mine with those, plus some pomegranate seeds. Feel free to get creative and add other items to the jar before chilling or when serving (chopped fruit, honey, cinnamon, nuts…).
This recipe serves 2. Enjoy!
This post was done in partnership with Almond Breeze (a brand I personally use daily), but opinions are completely my own.

The cookbook is almost here! It comes out April 15th! (And for those of you who pre-ordered on Amazon, it should be delivered to you on the 15th).
There are 100 vegetarian recipes, inspired by living in our little cabin in the woods, and the local California produce here. Twenty of the recipes are favorites from the blog (like the 3 above) and then there are 80 new ones! (see some of them, here!) Plus the book is packed with lots of my watercolors and photos of the cabin and cocktail parties on our deck.
Just like the blog, everything is displayed visually like the recipes above, so it’s super easy to cook from. There are lots of upcoming book signings scheduled for the New York and San Francisco areas- see them here! More to come. Feel free to sign up for my newsletter for updates.
And of course, you can order the book HERE.
