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.
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.
