To be honest, I almost didn’t share this post. Not because the recipe isn’t good enough, but because.. the pictures. So silly, I know. But I’m a perfectionist (that Virgo + Scorpio astrology combo is a doozy 😁) And the light just wasn’t very good, and I didn’t get “the shot” I wanted, but after I posted a picture of this spicy watermelon salad with cilantro and lime on Instagram and you guys went crazy for it, I thought, well now I HAVE to share it with you. Because it really is delicious. And I can just gonna put that little voice in my head that keeps saying the pictures aren’t good enough to the side and get to the good stuff.

If you’re like me, your head and your heart are all in on those warmer days and lovely spring produce, but your pantry is still stocked with hearty winter vegetables like beets, cabbage, potatoes and onions. Still. The same ones that have been on repeat for the last 3 months.

In all fairness, these vegetables really are an incredible way to nourish our bodies during the colder months. You know, that whole eating with the seasons thing really does have a purpose. And while heartier winter veggies usually end up roasted, caramelized, and sautéed, there’s nothing wrong with switching it up a little bit! This potato salad will help you channel some of that warm weather longing and turn it into a dish that hints at what is (surely!) just around the corner.
