Summer is definitely winding down, but there’s still plenty of hot weekends ahead of us! So why not enjoy it as much as we can … while getting a serving of fruit in! 😉
There’s nothing quite as refreshing as a cold, juicy, crisp watermelon in the heat of summer. I could eat half a watermelon as a meal and call it a day. Luckily, during the summer months, my appetite isn’t as monstrous. Usually something light and flavorful does the trick. So yep, watermelon is all I need. ☺️
But what happens when you put something delicious with something just as yummy? You get the most perfect summertime salad: Crisp watermelon. Fresh basil. Salty feta. Sweet balsamic. Yes, YEs, YES! Plus, it’s stunning. Look how beautiful it is! Who wouldn’t want to eat that?!
This shouldn’t even have its own blog post; it’s so easy and requires no skills whatsoever. none. zilch. Well, maybe some decent knife skills … 😉
Summer is right around the corner and gooood watermelon will be available everywhere! I plan on eating lots and lots of (Knox Co. Ind!) watermelon in the upcoming months, so it’s time to start researching the recipes! I found a recipe for the large watermelon “cake”. Looks super! However, I need something a little smaller. Something that I can enjoy without having a huge party (even though that would be fun 😉 )
I wanted to start with a “pie” version. It’s the perfect size and it’s delicious … and refreshing … and FILLING! One slab of “pie” is only 1pp … no matter how thick your slices are!! & being a girl watching her weight and tracking those points, watermelon is my new best friend 🙂 Plus, there are soooo many variations you could do with this: top it with your favorite fruits of the season and enjoy guilt free.
