Portobello Burgers & Watermelon Salad

We’re back in our home marina after a few weeks of roaming Desolation Sound and the Gulf Islands and slowly getting back to our routines.

Tonight was an old fav with a new twist – grilled portobello burgers marinated with an olive oil and Dijon mustard mixture. We always grill our portobellos for 7 minutes a side, starting with the cap side. Then we topped them with the last of our vegan antipasto and served on jalapeño buns.

And nothing tastes better as a side dish on a hot summer day than a simple watermelon salad! It is so refreshing and easy to mix and match with whatever is in the fridge or veggie pantry.

Take some add cubed watermelon (kind of obvious), cucumber, red onion and feta. This particular one also included a perfectly ripe avocado (isn’t life the best when you slice open an avocado and find creamy green goodness?). Then add some dried basil and mint to taste. That’s it!

I tend to make it about 30 minutes before we eat, so the flavours marinate but everything is still crisp. Leftovers are good the second day but definitely best on day one.

Stay safe and happy cruising.
