Refreshing Watermelon Salad

In my opinion watermelon is the ultimate summer snack. Slice it, bite in and enjoy its sweet refreshing goodness! How do you improve on that?

I’ve tried watermelon appetizers, watermelon salsas and watermelon slushies but I still prefer to eat a slice of watermelon straight up!

However…I do have soft spot for cubes of watermelon tossed with balsamic vinaigrette. I don’t know what it is but I find the combination of the two incredibly good!

Sometimes I’ll even take it a step further and sprinkle on feta cheese and toss on a few olives. The saltiness from the feta and olives just adds to the party!

I’ve called it a salad but it’s more like a refreshing light snack!

  1. This is the second time I've seen a watermelon salad like this. I have to give this a try. It's so healthy, and what a nice change from the typical fruit salad we see watermelon in.

  2. Oh man! I so wish I wasn't allergic to watermelon so I could eat this! It looks incredible.
