Crisp, sweet watermelon paired with cool, crunchy cucumber and finished off with a tangy lime mint vinaigrette create the perfect summer salad as a side dish or a main event.
I created this dish to take along to a summer get together yesterday, and it was the perfect take along dish, the watermelon marinated a little in the dressing, sweetening it up and balancing the flavors.
Choose hearty curly leaf or lacino kale as the perfect foil for this salad, this type of kale holds up well to a little marinating.
Watermelon radish, finely julienned adds a little bite to balance the sweet watermelon, and lastly, creamy feta, the perfect finishing touch.
Limes are one of my favorite ingredients to use in a dressing, for this recipe I used the juice, zest, and for an added depth of flavor a drop of lime essential oil.
I hope you enjoy this super flavorful summer salad!
