Introduction

Watermelon is a favorite summer dessert, but it makes a lovely salad, too. Here, creamy citrus dressing pairs with the sweet melon and crunchy celery.

    2 stalks celery, sliced
    1 red onion, thinly sliced

    2 tablespoons feta cheese, crumbled

Add a handful of pitted Kalamata olives for extra flavor.

    I made this with lots of fresh mint, some in the dressing and some in the salad, instead of cilantro or parsley. Really delicious and refreshing on a very hot day. - 6/22/12

    I made this last night for my "day of retirement cocktail hour". I added about 1/3 cup of lite sour cream to increase the creaminess. It tasted great and everyone praised it (none had ever thought about watermelon in a salad before). Will make again and again.

    What a unique and refreshing salad this is--and a calorie bargain, too. Made it exactly as directed, except used only a quarter of a red onion because that was all I had in the house. Interesting flavor combinations; watermelon becomes less fruit-like and more vegetable-like. Yum. Will make again. - 6/21/12

    Wow, what a wonderful mix of tastes. This is delicious! I added some chopped basil to the recipe as we have tons of it and I love it. Yum! - 6/9/12
