Watermelon Salad Americana Recipe

Watermelon Salad Americana Recipe
Watermelon is an essential component of 4th of July celebrations. While it’s usually served in wedges or in a medley of melon chunks, it is the perfect color of red for red, white, and blueberry salads and desserts. In this Watermelon Salad Americana, the watermelon is cut into small stars and mixed with blueberries and feta. A lemon-lime vinaigrette is drizzled over each individual serving. Even though it may seem a weird combination, the watermelon and feta cheese are a delicious combination and complement each other well.
Why not include this festive and yummy salad at your 4th of July or other patriotic holiday celebration? It takes only a few minutes to assemble, it’s pretty, and your family and guests will appreciate something delicious and unique. If you’re short on time, you can cut the watermelon into chunks instead of stars; it will taste just as good. Rather than individual servings, this salad can be served in a large bowl buffet-style. However, let each person drizzle the dressing on their own servings just before eating; the juices from the watermelon mix with the dressing to make too much juice in the salad bowl.
