Last weekend we hosted a BBQ for my cousins, and naturally I wanted to impress with a wide array of salads and sides, not to mention my homemade chocolate ice cream.

Crisp juicy watermelon, creamy goat cheese and salty pistachios plus some mint from my container garden worked together as only summer produce can. It’s not really a recipe as much as an assembly. If you’d like to try the full recipe with a lemon verbena dressing, check it out here. Let’s eat!
