Jolie’s Louisiana Bistro combines the two food practices that summer requires: eating juicy watermelon and grilling. Juicy and only slightly grilled, the two slices of watermelon from Robin Farms in Church Point are stacked on a wild arugula salad with champagne vinaigrette. They are then topped with WesMar feta cheese from Maurevill, completing Tuesday's Dish of the Day.
