Within the past 5-7 years, the watermelon mint salad concept has taken over. For some it may sounds like this obscure concept, I get you! However, for whatever reason the salad components just pair so well together and it makes for the perfect warm weather salad. This salad is typically paired with feta cheese or goat cheese, but you can honestly skip the cheese altogether and have a wonderful dish.
What I love most about this salad, is that it’s quick, easy, affordable, light, refreshing has minimal ingredients, no cheese, it’s savory, it’s sweet, has texture, packed with fresh herbs, you can even add an element of heat if desired, throw in avocado or nuts for healthy fats, it can easily be made in bulk, perf for spring and summer and is even non vegan approved!
If you love fresh modern vegan concepts that don’t disappoint, you have to try this recipe for a vegan Watermelon Cucumber Salad!
In a large bowl, combine all of the salad ingredients minus the balsamic glaze(optional) and olive oil. Toss and coat. Store in fridge until ready to serve. To plate drizzle the olive oil and balsamic glaze over the top.
