Watermelon, Cucumber & Mixed Greens Summer Salad
Perfect Summer Salad for hot, sunny days!!
A couple of days ago, I had posted a question on Instagram asking you guys what you'd like to see on my blog and bunch of you requested for Easy Summer Salads, so I created this salad keeping you in mind.
Everything in this salad screams Summer! The mix of sweet, juicy watermelon and pineapple with crunchy cucumbers and pumpkin seeds makes it look so vibrant and beautiful and not to mention, so incredibly healthy. It's packed with anti-oxidants, Vitamin C, healthy fats and minerals like Zinc that are essential for our immunity and great for healthy, glowing skin.
WATERMELON, CUCUMBER & MIXED GREENS SUMMER SALAD
For the salad:
Watermelon - 1 cup, cubed
Cucumber - 1 small, cubed
Pineapple - 1/2 cup, cubed (optional)
Fresh mint - 2 sprigs, chopped
Mixed greens - 2 cups mixed salad greens
Pumpkin Seeds - 1/4 cup
For the dressing:
Extra Virgin Olive Oil - 1 tbsp
Balsamic glaze or Balsamic vinegar - 2 tsp
Dash of lemon juice
Salt & Pepper - to taste
Add watermelon, pineapple, cucumber and salad greens to a large bowl and toss to combine. Alternately, layer on a large platter for serving.
Stir through the dressing ingredients until well combined and pour over the salad. Toss well before serving.
Serve it as a refreshing starter or a side salad at dinner!
This is perfect salad to take for a picnic. Just carry the dressing separately and mix it with the salad just before serving.
