It took around a second for our eyes to focus on the cubes - before we saw the title of the photograph, we could have sworn it was blocks of tuna, which is similarly veiny. The seedless seeds eventually eliminate the possibility that the cubes belong to the Kingdom Animalia, but we think it’s conceivable that this salad would also work with the fish!
So we think this is the first thing we’ve actually seen out of Sepia’s kitchen, and it certainly looks pretty. But Zesmerelda, who took the photo, had this to say: I’ve had other watermelon salads this summer that I’ve liked better. Prefer a crumbly cheese versus the yogurt. Wasn’t as tangy as I like.”
Yeah, we can totally see wanting something with a little bite and density to contrast with the cool sponginess of the watermelon. Also, it’s awesome that Z is comparing this to the many other watermelon salads she’s had this summer - we love it when people make us feel unsophisticated!
But at least it wasn’t an epic investment; Sepia offers this salad for $7. For another buck, one could snag a chilled cucumber and avocado soup with house-smoked trout and radishes.
Okay, we’re off to convalesce from our cold. Have a good weekend!
