Refreshing Watermelon Salad

Refreshing Watermelon Salad

The combination of watermelon, avocado, feta, and tomato make this a delicious, healthy, and Refreshing Watermelon Salad!

Heather L. had a similar salad at the Four Season’s Costa Rica and then re-created it. This is one of her go-to potluck salads and it is now one of mine. This salad always gets rave reviews and endless requests for the recipe.  Thank you, Heather, for sharing your recipe!

Ingredients:

1/2 chilled seedless watermelon, cubed

1 large chilled tomato, cubed

1 large avocado, cubed and set aside

1 cup crumbled feta

6 large basil leaves, chopped (set aside a pinch or 2 for garnish)

2 T. extra virgin olive oil

1 chilled lime, juiced

Pink Himalayan salt, to taste

Finely ground pepper, to taste

Chill your serving bowl.  Layer ingredients in the order listed above in chilled bowl.  Season with oil, lime, salt, and pepper.  Gently toss.  Take a taste test to see if you need additional seasoning.

Tip:  Keep this dish chilled throughout the potluck by filling a slightly larger bowl with ice and placing your chilled bowl on top!
