Strawberries. Watermelon. Arugula. Feta.
Sweet. Sweet. Bitter. Tang.
This super simple salad with somewhat oddly paired ingredients melds so perfectly together that it creates a total flavor explosion. And it tells every one of your senses: baby, summer is on it’s way. Strawberries. Watermelon. Yum.
With some easy chopping and zero time in front of the stove, this salad is a cool side to a spicy main like BBQ ribs or Thai skewered beef. Add a bit sliced grilled chicken for some protein and bang, you have a main course or double the recipe and you’ll have a great pot luck that will stun Aunt Audrey at the family reunion.
