Nothing says summer quite like watermelon and, here at the Perfect P, we have watermelon on the brain! Our newest kid tee will be a sweet watermelon color and available soon, but until then, we wanted to share this delicious salad that is perfect for summer. I absolutely love fruit in salad and I think it really brings delicious color, texture and taste. Remember to choose organic veggies and fruit whenever possible,this recipe is easy to make and easy to eat.
Refreshing Watermelon Salad
1/4 large organic watermelon cut into 1 inch cubes
1 organic cucumber, peeled, halfed and sliced
1 medium organic red onion, sliced in half, sliced thinly
1 quarter cup cashews or candied pecans
1 bunch of fresh chopped mint
Combine the first four 'goods' (ok it's just a clever way to say ingredients) in a large wood bowl and sprinkle the mint on top. Pour dressing over the salad right before serving. Inside tip -- my Italian father loved making our salad dressing every night and he was a big believer in never soaking your salad with dressing before you were ready to serve it.
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/8 cup red wine or balsamic vinegar (depends upon personal taste)
salt and pepper to taste
1 dash of organic worcestershire sauce
