Watermelon Feta and Blueberry Salad is salty, sweet and an easy summer side dish that's perfect for the 4th of July or any patriotic holiday! You only need 3 ingredients for this simple recipe!
It's the season for patriotic meals, and I have a super simple red, white and blue salad to share with you today. This 3 ingredient recipe is one of the easiest summer salads you can make and goes with just about everything!
I picked up two small watermelons at the local market yesterday, along with some fresh, juicy blueberries and a package of feta cheese.
I love watermelon, but let's face it -- that stuff can be messy! For the kids, I find it usually works best to cut up the watermelon so that it can be easily devoured with a fork. Otherwise, watermelon juice is all over them, the chairs, floor, house -- you get the idea.
How to Prepare Watermelon Feta Blueberry Salad
If you want to make this salad even easier, go with pre-cut watermelon from the deli area. Super, super simple -- and fast!
If you're using a whole watermelon, cut it up, remove the rind, and remove the seeds. If it's a seedless watermelon, you have one less step to do!
Cut the watermelon into bite-sized cubes. Then, toss them into a large serving bowl.
Next, wash the blueberries, and remove any stems or mushy berries. Pat them dry, and add them to the serving bowl.
Feta gives the salad a nice salty taste and adds the white you need for a red, white and blue salad. Since I'm one of those people who loves salt on watermelon, I love the added feta!
If you're not a feta fan, you could get the same look with gorgonzola. Cotija or another similar white cheese would also work.
Toss some feta cheese in with the watermelon and blueberries. That's all you have to do to make this salad!
There really are no hard and fast rules for the quantities. Use as much of the ingredients as you need.
