Corn & Peach Salsa, Grilled Watermelon Salad & Other Things I Wish I Made This Weekend

I've been slacking on cooking for myself with fresh, local ingredients. I blame my birthday and all of the requisite eating out that comes with celebrating yourself. Also, the stress of the condo buying (or not... it appears it may be dunzo due to a really out of whack appraisal).

But, that doesn't mean I haven't seen a TON of things I wish I was making and eating. Here's a round up of the recipes that are just begging for summer eating:
Two other great recipes came to me through social media that I'll share here:

@EatThisNotThat's Grilled Watermelon Salad
Cut watermelon into cubes. Rub w olive oil & grill. Toss w/ arugula, goat cheese, more olive oil & balsamic vinegar!

Joe's Jersey Summer Corn & Peach Salsa
Ingredients
1 ear Jersey corn cobbed
1 scallion (green only)
1 tbs cilantro
2 tomatoes diced fine
1 white peach diced fine
Quarter lemon juiced

Toss ingredients and let it sit for about 30 min in the fridge. Serve with pita or tortilla chips.

It all sounds great. I enjoy imaginary cooking, too. Sometimes the reality doesn't measure up, but then sometimes it turns out fabulous. That salsa sounds especially good. Happy belated Birthday.
