When it comes to finding a refreshing summer recipe, nothing beats this delicious watermelon blueberry salad. It’s the perfect side whenever you want something fresh and healthy, especially if you’re planning a barbecue.
This watermelon, blueberry, and feta salad is not only super refreshing, but it’s also very budget-friendly since both watermelon and blueberries are in full season. You just have to cube the watermelon, make sure it does not have seeds and mix it with the blueberries. If you add the juice of one lemon mixed with two tablespoons of honey, you will have an easy and healthy dessert or snack. Bonus? It’s red, white and blue, so it’s perfect for any 4th of July or patriotic celebration.
It’s also especially yummy if you add a few leaves of fresh mint, feta cheese (or goat cheese, farmer’s cheese or mozzarella) and dress with a little reduction of balsamic vinegar at serving time. I promise this will be your favorite summer salad!
