Watermelon and Avocado Salad

Watermelon and Avocado Salad | A Nerd Cooks

After getting my first taste of balsamic vinegar on watermelon in the Watermelon Nectarine Caprese Salad that I made a little while back, I was hooked.  There’s such a delicious contrast of flavors going on – sweet vs. tart.

I knew that I couldn’t stop there.

We got our first good watermelon recently, and I couldn’t help but cube it up and toss it into a salad, add some avocado, and drizzle with balsamic vinegar.

If you haven’t tried this flavor combination before, wait no longer, and let this be a gentle introduction!Watermelon and Avocado Salad | A Nerd Cooks

You’ll need (makes 2 side salads or one large main dish salad):

  • 2-3 cups greens (I used arugula)
  • 2 cups watermelon, cubed
  • 1 avocado, sliced or cubed
  • 1-2 oz. feta cheese
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • balsamic vinegar and olive oil

This is super simple.  Ready?

Toss all ingredients, except for vinegar and oil, together in a bowl or on a plate.  Drizzle with balsamic vinegar and olive oil.  Or, if you’re like me and are really into sour/tart flavors, just go with balsamic vinegar only.

This salad is so light and refreshing, yet pretty substantial thanks to the addition of avocado.
