Costco is great for economy sized “things” but they usually don’t sell you half of something, like watermelons. I don’t really need a whole watermelon but I purchased it anyway because I really wanted my favorite summer salad, Wildfire’s Watermelon Salad.
I used maybe 1/8 of the watermelon for the salad. I’ve cut up the half and still have an entire half of a watermelon. Thinking I’ll share with others.
The salad is really simple and tastes delicious. Entertain with this and you’ll be a huge hit.
I found a video on how to make it. There’s a 15 second ad before it starts. It’s a chef from Wildfire preparing it. I’m glad I had a chance to see this because I didn’t make mine the way he did but the end result is the same.
- 2 Tablespoons Balsamic vinegar
- ½ teas Kosher salt
- ¼ cup light extra virgin olive oil
- 1/8 teas black pepper
- ½ shallot, chopped
- 1 clove garlic, shopped
- Cut up watermelon
- ¼ pound Feta cheese, small cubes
- 12-16 Grape tomatoes halved
Whisk all the dressing ingredients. Layer your salad anyway you like. Apply the dressing.
It’s so simple and you can use up a part of your watermelon. This will be your summer favorite.
