Easy + Refreshing Summer Salad

When I was at the beach last week, my SIL (Beth from Miss Modern Wellness) made a similar salad most nights to go with our dinners. I LOVED IT SO MUCH. And the homemade dressing was so easy!!! Best of all, the dressing really goes well with just about any toppings, so you can make it different each night of the week. While the recipe below calls for watermelon, I've also made it with avocado and grilled corn. You could also throw in some cucumber with the watermelon. So many options!

Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup neutral tasting oil like avocado, canola, or grapeseed
  • 2 Tbls red wine vinegar
  • 1 Tbls honey
  • 2 tsp dijon mustard
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • 1/4 watermelon cut into cubes
  • 1 big bag mixed greens or arugula
  • Sunflower seeds
  • Fresh feta cheese
Recipe
  1. Slice watermelon into cubes
  2. Mix oil, vinegar, dijon mustard, honey, salt and pepper in a mason jar and shake until well-combined
  3. Put mixed greens in a bowl, drizzle salad dressing, and toss to coat.
  4. Top with feta crumbles, sunflower seeds, and watermelon. Toss again.
  5. Add a little more salt & pepper to taste
  6. Enjoy!

PS - I don't actually measure any of the dressing ingredients, I just eyeball it. It's really easy to add a little of this or that until you like the way it tastes. And then I don't dirty a bunch of measuring spoons, haha.
