I’m sharing with you today a recipe for a delicious and refreshing red, white, and blue salad that is wonderful anytime, but especially fun for those Star-Spangled holidays–Watermelon, Blueberry & Feta Salad. It is super quick, super easy, and super tasty.

Here’s What You Need:

Watermelon, Blueberries, Feta Cheese, and Balsamic Vinegar. Can you believe it? There are only 4 ingredients.

The Directions:

Cut your watermelon into large rectangles, triangles, crescents, or whatever shape you’d like. Stars perhaps? Place the watermelon on a platter. Top with blueberries and Feta cheese. Drizzle with Balsamic vinegar. Easy peasy, right?

This watermelon salad will not only be a big hit for its fabulous flavor, but also for its fun and festive appearance.

Tip for Cutting Watermelon

If you are just wanting bite-sized chunks of watermelon for this salad or any other time, try this easy cutting tip.

  1. Cut your watermelon in half.
  1. Using a knife, cut along the outer edge of the red, along the rind.
  1. Now, take the knife and cut through the ripe fruit (but not through the rind), making strips or vertical lines.
  1. Then cut perpendicular lines, so it resembles a checker board.
  1. Scoop out the watermelon using a large spoon. Scoop horizontally to make chunks.

All the juices stay within the rind making for easy clean-up.

Here’s a Printable Recipe just for you… Enjoy!
