Watermelon is one of the most refreshing fruits of summer. Since the water content of the fruit is so high, it’s ideal for munching on a hot day. It can both rehydrate and cool you down, especially when eaten straight from the refrigerator. One of the best ways to spruce up your favorite summer snack is to turn it into a watermelon salad. There are so many things that the fruit can be tossed with to create a truly delicious and refreshing dish. My personal favorite is mixing it with feta, mint, and cucumber, but there are so many more scrumptious combinations! Here are some delicious and refreshing watermelon salads that you can make this summer. They will please the whole family and keep you happily eating healthy watermelon dishes all season long.
Watermelon pairs so well with salty cheeses. This combination of watermelon and goat cheese is unexpected and delicious. It is dotted with fresh basil and balsamic syrup to make an easy-to-assemble salad.
This creative take on a watermelon salad makes a beautiful presentation at any summer gathering. It is full of flavor and crunch from the feta and almonds. Be sure to pre-cut the watermelon into slices for easy eating.
If you've got the grill lit, you've got to give this salad a try. The watermelon is grilled before it is sprinkled with onion, Cotija cheese, and cilantro. The grilling helps caramelize the watermelon sugars, intensifying the flavors to make each bite truly amazing.
