I like to try and make ahead as many of the foods we eat on the 4th of July as I can and this salad, found on Delish.com, is one I can throw together while watching the fools try and eat more hot dogs than each other at the Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest on Coney Island.
Watermelon Strawberry Caprese Salad
- 3 c. watermelon, cubed
- 2 c. strawberries, chopped
- 1/2 c. Feta, crumbled
- 1/4 c. extra-virgin olive oil
- kosher salt
- Freshly ground black pepper
- 1/4 c. fresh basil, torn
In a large bowl, combine watermelon, strawberries, feta and olive oil. Season with salt and pepper and toss to coat. Garnish with basil and chill before serving.
This salad is perfect for serving alongside grilled chicken and with a great Rosé like the one that has just been introduced by Westerly Wines! #GirlsGoneWine
