Come summers and we can’t have enough of this wonder fruit! Watermelon is the most refreshing fruit and it just sends you to a tropical land and back! Since this fruit overpowers and pushes aside any other fruit at home, I decided to mix a few fruits together. This not only made the salad more rich, but also added the much needed contrast in colors.
I love the watermelon feta salad which is very commonly made but since feta is not available everywhere in India, I skip it in the salad I make at home. But I love the bite of onions with watermelon.
This salad is already so fresh and inviting that it’s a challenge to enhance the taste. Only a watermelon vinaigrette can enhance the taste of a watermelon salad. This vinaigrette is sans vinegar because I didn’t want to kill the freshness by adding vinegar.
Here’s a quick, most refreshing salad for you this summer!
