Recipe | Watermelon salad

I tried a new recipe last week when I didn’t want to use the oven because it was a hot day : a watermelon salad. Oh yum, it was a huge success, super easy to make, and calorie friendly, so here is the recipe if you’d like to try.

  1. I’m wondering how the vinaigrette tastes with the watermelon. Does it overpower the natural sweetness of the watermelon? I’ll have to try it.

    1. I put a little bit of it for that exact purpose, I didn’t want the vinaigrette to overtake the taste and I was afraid the combo would be too dry without. I’ll try without next time. Let me know if you find an interesting twist to this. I’d love to know if you do! Xo, Si-
