Watermelon Orange and Onion Salad with Balsamic Vinegar

(Last Updated On: June 7, 2019)

Watermelon is one of my favorite fruits, partially because of its association with a warm summer day. There is nothing refreshing than a fresh cold slice of dripping watermelon with plenty to share with friends. This grown up way to serve watermelon is also nice to share with friends. Add a nice glass of sparkling wine and you are ready for Sunday brunch. And for a little twist, try adding some feta crumbles and this salad is all you’ll need for a light lunch.
