This salad is perfect for entertaining and a raw pot luck [...]

This is one of my favorite salads, a staple in the summer! I keep sun-cured black olives on hand (which I’ve marinated myself in cold-pressed Greek olive oil and Himalayan Crystal salt) for just this purpose. It is just bursting with the sweetness of the watermelon and fresh raspberries, which is highlighted beautifully by the [...]
