Summer is in full swing and nothing beats the heat quite like a cool, crisp and refreshing salad.
I don’t know about you, but when I hear cool, crisp and refreshing, one word comes to mind: Watermelon. Hey, it’s not just a summertime snack anymore. We’re taking this all-time summer favorite and mixing it with a hint of mint and a touch of jalapeño. Top that with the coolness of feta cheese and a slightly tangy Homemade Citrus Vinaigrette and this salad just screams SUMMER! Pair it with a glass of Rosé…or maybe a Chardonnay or Viognier, and you’ll never want summer to end.
