Watermelon Summertime Salad

Hi! This isn’t a typical “blog post” day for me but, sometimes I’m in the kitchen experimenting and it turns out so good, and is SO simple, I just have to share it right away. Mainly because I’ll forget how I did it! lol (It’s called grandma syndrome or I raised 3 teenagers and this is what’s left!) 

I’ve been craving fresh watermelon. I kept walking past them for months now in the store but, I didn’t want to get one and be disappointed. Yesterday I gave into the craving and stood at the bin “knocking” on watermelons. (I swear we all look silly doing it! Like the Keebler Elf is going pop out of a secret door and say “Yep! This one is ripe!”) I finally found one with just the right “bounce” and took it home.

Thankfully I was not disappointed! It is sweet, ripe, seedless, and ready to be devoured by Moi!

I decided to whip up a summer salad using my watermelon. This salad is so simple and packed with so many different flavors that blend perfectly together even though everything in your brain is saying “NO! This can’t be right!” Trust me…it is! It SO is!

Watermelon and Balsamic Dressing Summer Salad

The Sweet berries and watermelon combined with the robust flavor of the Balsamic Dressing and the Feta Cheese are fantastic compliments to each other. I loved every single bite of this salad and may have a new summer time addiction in the making! Best part…the dressing is another Kraft dressing. Which makes this salad easy peasy to throw together in a jiffy!

Hope you’ll join me in my new found love! The recipe is below so you can print it off but, you probably won’t have to. It’s just one of those simple dishes! I’m sharing this recipe on PotLuck Weekend so click here to check it out!
