Mediterranean Watermelon Salad

Here is another great idea for a quick lunch or a crowd pleaser at a dinner party. This salad combines the flavors of the Mediterranean with the perfect summer fruit, watermelon. I whipped up a quick batch of this and devoured it for lunch immediately.


All you need are a few simple ingredients and some fresh fruit and herbs! I just picked up this fabulous watermelon from the market – look how fabulous that color is!
I also had this great dill that I had picked up from my local farmers market… so I really had no excuse not to make myself something delicious and fresh for lunch.
