With watermelon in season and other melons and fruits available at the Market, this is the perfect time of the year to indulge in some refreshing and super easy salads that will thrill your tastebuds!
Over the weekend, I made a simple salad with yellow watermelon, feta, and minced red onion. With a drizzle of olive oil and red wine vinegar plus a pinch of sea salt and a grind of pepper, it was finished and couldn’t have been easier or more delicious.
The possibilities are endless for combining melon with other fresh ingredients for amazing dishes. Think about mint, basil, or arugula for herby fresh greens. Add some heat with jalapenos or cayenne peppers. Mozzarella, feta, or goat cheese all make great additions with melon. Add any kind of fruit or even cucumber, tomatoes, or corn to the mix.
