I cannot believe this, but the 4th of July is just a few weeks away! I wanted to share this amazing Watermelon Blueberry Feta Salad with y’all just in time for the summer holiday. Not only is it SO refreshing and delicious, but it’s also SUPER patriotic color wise. 🙂
My mom made this salad a few years ago and I’ve been making it every summer since then! This is not your typical fruit salad, in fact, I would relate it to a Caprese salad in terms of concept and flavor! The olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and feta paired with the watermelon, blueberries, and freshly chopped mint makes the perfect combination. The mint literally brings this salad to LIFE and ties everything together!
I also love that I can literally throw this recipe together in under 10 minutes, and the flavor is out of this world! Since the main ingredient is watermelon, I wouldn’t recommend making this ahead of time. I find that the longer the salad sits the more watered down it gets. I would suggest whisking together the olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt, and pepper ahead of time and storing the refrigerator. Then right before your guests arrive just toss everything together. SO simple!
I cannot wait for y’all to make this recipe and share it with family and friends! It’s a super unique salad that is sure to impress! Stay tuned for an amazing RED, WHITE, and BLUE dessert coming to the blog next week.
