I’ve teamed up with the ladies over at MISSBISH for their #MISSDISH series! I’ll be sharing delicious, easy, and healthy recipes on their blog every month :) With that said, it’s officially summer! It’s hella hot outside, and one of my favorite things to make on a hot day is a refreshing Watermelon Feta Salad! Don’t get it twisted, you don’t have to do the crazy grid presentation to enjoy this, but it’s a really fun option for entertaining. This recipe is super easy to throw together and is gorgeous when tossed together in a bowl. There’s something so refreshing about cold, ripe watermelon that’s sprinkled with just a touch of salt, mixed with salty feta, cool cucumber and melon, and creamy avocado. Thin slivers of red onion give the salad a little bite, and fresh mint brings the perfect brightness. A lil drizzle of good balsamic vinegar is all you need to bring it together. Simple, delicious, perfect for summer!
It’s watermelon season! Watermelon is available year round, but its peak season is May through August. Watermelon is one of my favorite fruits! It has a ton of nutritional benefits, such as a significant source of the antioxidants beta-carotene and vitamin C. It contains lycopene, and is composed of 92% water, making it great for snacking on during warm weather since it helps to keep you hydrated.
Watermelon is soo versatile! You can make smoothies, salsas, sorbets, salads, on its own with lime and salt, or into a refreshing cocktail! This margarita is a crowd pleaser - the perfect mix of sweet and tart - with a good amount of booze that’ll get your party goin.
