Simply Sweet Watermelon Salad

Simply Sweet Watermelon Salad is super delicious. I never knew that watermelon could possibly taste this good. In fact, I never thought that watermelon salad even existed until recently. I overheard two ladies discussing watermelon salad while I was standing in line at the check-out. I guess I was eavesdropping but what the heck, I’m only human and really quite intrigued with this “new to me” watermelon salad.

Ingredients

While I was paging through a magazine, standing in line at the grocery store, trying to appear busy and not in fact eavesdropping, the two ladies in front of me were rapping off the ingredients for making watermelon salad. I was making a quick mental note to see how many ingredients I had at home. I soon realized that the only ingredient I had was watermelon. No blueberries, no feta cheese, no cucumbers. I didn’t want to get out of line and start running through the grocery store, throwing stuff into my cart. (After all, I wasn’t trying out for the Supermarket Sweep Game)

Make Do

Instead of buying ingredients to make watermelon salad, I decided to make do with what I had. What I did have was watermelon, sweet black cherries, red onion, blueberry vanilla goat cheese, fresh mint leaves, bottled lime juice and honey. I decided to give it a go and started to make my version of watermelon salad. I recently purchased the blueberry vanilla goat cheese while attending the WI State Fair, so I was anxious to try it.

Simply Sweet Watermelon Salad

Simply sweet watermelon salad is a must try. It’s fast, easy and simple to make. The refreshing taste of the sweet watermelon, combined with the juicy cherries and tangy blueberry flavor from the goat cheese is super by itself but drizzle on the lime/honey dressing and you have a winner. The torn mint leaves add that coolness you’d expect from fresh mint. Add an extra layer of yum to this salad by tossing in a few pitted kalamata olives.
