A watermelon salad wasn’t something I ever thought I would make. I just usually like my watermelon plain without any additions such as vegetables or cheese. But after playing around with some ingredients, this salad came to be. I definitely enjoyed this combo more than I imagined, and my kids also liked it. Watermelon salad is one of those salads that you have got to try before saying no to because the flavors work so well together. This watermelon salad will go great with protein.
