Written By Cynthia Annett-Hynes Edibles / Recipes / Salad Oct 10, 2014 Part and Parcel’s Melon Salad SHARE VIA: Facebook Twitter PinterestI was talking to Jason Hyde of Peacock & Martin at the Victoria Wine Festival and he recommended the Melon Salad at the newly open Part and Parcel in Quadra Village. He said it was outstanding. So, when I made my first visit to the restaurant I ordered it up. It was so good I had to have the recipe to share with EAT readers. Parcel and Parcel’s Anna and Grant Gard generously offered their recipe. Here it is—enjoy.
