Watermelon Salad

Servings 4


1 small seedless watermelon cut into thin wedges

1 large heirloom tomato sliced

1 cup cherry tomatoes halved

1/2 medium red onion sliced

2 Persian cucumbers sliced

1 cup basil leaves washed and trimmed

1/4 cup feta cheese

3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

3 tablespoons white balsamic OR white wine vinegar sea salt and freshly ground black pepper


Layer all veggies and feta on 4 plates, drizzle with oil and vinegar, and season with salt and pepper - that’s it! Super easy!

To make Paleo: omit feta cheese

If you need to prepare in a large bowl so it can be self-served, simply cube or ball the melon instead of cutting it into wedges, dice the heirloom tomato, and then just toss everything in a large bowl!
