I’ve been trying to come up with creative ways to satisfy my sweet tooth that aren’t too “bad”. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve been loving my ice cream, but sometimes you have to push it aside and behave yourself.
And when it’s a dish like this, you don’t mind one bit.
I love this salad for so many reasons…it’s quick and easy, it’s healthy, and best of all it tastes delicious. Refreshing doesn’t even begin to describe it. And using my garden herbs always makes me happy.
I have to say, although this recipe is terrific, this salad tastes really great even without the extras. Straight up watermelon, feta and basil is perfect if you don’t feel like dressing it up. Either way, you can thank me later 🙂
