It's finally Spring! This time of year always reminds us to sit back, relax, and enjoy taking it easy. On that note, we don't want to spend all day in the kitchen – we want easy, fresh, and healthy recipes to enjoy so we can get outside!
This Crisp and Sweet Watermelon Salad is the perfect warm weather recipe for those days when you want to spend some time hanging out enjoying a picnic, sitting on the porch, or just enjoying the fresh breeze with all the windows open. Do y'all have memories of biting into a big, juicy slice of watermelon during warmer months? We sure do, and we also recall having to eat them outside to avoid any drippings on the clean floor – sorry, Ma! The cool thing about this Crisp and Sweet Watermelon is that it doesn't drip! Melon1, the folks that bring us this new melon, like to say 'you can even wear white' while enjoying this juicy-on-the-inside (not on the outside) watermelon.
We made this recipe so you can enjoy fresh melons in more than one way. No one likes a soggy salad which is why we chose this particular melon for this recipe. It's refreshing, crisp, and all the juicy watermelon flavor stays inside the fruit. Let us know in the comments if you try this recipe or tag us on our social channels @farmstarliving.
