A Taste of Summer: Watermelon and Apple Salad

I just made this salad yesterday for lunch and fell in love — the simple preparation belies its beautifully complex flavor! I couldn’t resist adding watermelon to my salad again for dinner last night . . . and for lunch today. Needless to say, I’m hooked. I did not add cheese to this, but if you would like to add a little bit of cheese, the tanginess of feta compliments the sweetness of watermelon perfectly. Also, this salad benefits from an aged balsamic vinegar, though it’s certainly not a must. Enjoy!

Watermelon and Apple Salad

1 tablespoon aged balsamic vinegarĀ 

salt and pepper to taste

We'd love to hear from you . . .
