If you’re anything like me, you’ve probably got a few things in your closet that you just know make you look like the best version of yourself, without even trying them on.
(And you’ve probably got a frightening laundry pile that you have been circuitously avoiding for at least a week now. But let’s focus on the positive, mmmkay?)
Usually taking shape as a well cut pair of trousers, a flowy maxi dress, or a LBD (ahem, thats little black dress to the male faction of readers), and generally being in a forgiving fabric (with perhaps a bit of stretch), it’s essential to have at least a couple of those ‘sure-things’ in stock for times when you need to gussy yerself on up in a hurry.
Think of this salad as that easy dress, that tie that somehow matches everything, or that pair of heels you can stand in for hours without wanting to saw your feet off at the ankles.
Granted this salad – chock full of juicy watermelon, sweet jicama, and salty cotija cheese – is more of a Summertime wardrobe staple…but nevermind. Who really wants to wear a short dress with pale legs in the Winter anyway?!
This is the salad I made when I didn’t want to make anything last week.
