This Watermelon Salad is full of salty cheese , sweet watermelon and tangy balsamic vinaigrette,oh It's so good!

This makes a perfect side dish for summer get-together or barbeque parties!

Nothing beats cold and delicious watermelon salad on hot summer days. And don’t forget, watermelon is really good for you too. It’s loaded with Vitamin A, B6 and C, and is a great source of potassium.

This balsamic vinaigrette is super easy to make . Just mix in olive oil ,balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper and tangy & fresh salad dressing ready in less than a minute!

The salty, creaminess of quality feta combined with the sweet, crunchy summer watermelon along with fresh basil and the tang of the balsamic vinaigrette is just so fabulous and refreshing. I also added some crumbled cheddar cheese cubes.

Here I added cherry tomatoes and cucumber to this salad. You can also add onions if you want. Also sometimes I like to add roasted sliced almonds or roasted pumpkin seeds to this salad. It adds a nice crunch to this refreshing salad!
