No, this photograph is not photoshopped.. I found a yellow watermelon; I had never tasted one before. It was definitely sweeter than the pink watermelons and tasted thicker like honey, maybe the color is playing tricks on me like when eating mint ice cream it taste more minty when it is colored green!

I ate at an amazing cafe, and both things I had were phenomenal: the green caprese salad  and chocolate flourless cake. I have not tried to recreate the chocolate flourless cake yet, but I have had a chance to the make the green caprese salad. I have made it three times in the last week. The dressing is perfect, and super easy to make! Recipe below:
