Nothing quite says summer like watermelon. So juicy, fresh, and cool (that sounds like a song lyric, and yet also describes watermelon perfectly), even my kids are into it. I know you’re going to love this 21 Day Fix Watermelon Salad, which is the perfect combination of both refreshing and full of flavor. This recipe is also great for Ultimate Portion Fix and Weight Watchers (it’s only 2 points per serving!).
Buy a watermelon slicer here! (yep – that’s a thing!)
But first! Let me tell you a quick watermelon story.
21 Day Fix Watermelon Salad
When I was a kid growing up in Southern California, we’d stop at the strawberry stands on the side of the road to buy fresh strawberries and often watermelon and citrus fruits. One day, the stands owner, an old Mexican man, asked me if I’d like a treat. I said yes, because TREAT!
He grabbed a watermelon, picked just hours before, and chopped into it with a huge knife. Juice and seeds spilled out onto the wooden table as he defly sliced it up into bright red pieces. He grabbed a lemon, cut it in half, and squeezed it over a slice of watermelon. Then, he dipped it in salt and handed it to me.
Totally not what I was expecting, but I tried it anyway. My face still puckers at the memory of it! But also? It was kind of awesome.
And this recipe has a similar (yet sweeter) vibe. It reminds me of a Southern California afternoon.
This salad is the perfect side dish when you’re grilling. It’s also perfect for bringing to a party or a potluck, and the pretty red, white and blue colors make it festive for the 4th of July.
AND! It’s easy. SO easy, you guys.
