Ingredients

  • ½ small watermelon cubed (452 g)
  • ½ large persian cucumber cubed (338 g)
  • ¼ red onion sliced thin (65 g)
  • 1 avocado diced (117 g)
  • 2 oz fat-free feta 56 g
  • Handful of fresh basil chopped (15 g)
  • Handful of fresh mint chopped (15 g)
  • ¼ cup pistachios chopped (28 g)
  • 1 Tbsp white balsamic vinegar (15 g)
  • Kosher salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Add all ingredients to a large bowl. Sprinkle with at least a few large pinches of kosher salt and some cracked pepper to taste and toss well. Add more salt and pepper if needed.
  • Pour into a smaller bowl for better presentation and top with extra crushed pistachios and whole leaves of mint for garnish.

Notes

  • I love this salad when you want to serve something more interesting and beautiful for guests, or to bring to a party.  We love it tossed with arugula but wanted to keep it separate for easier customization.  I like to serve it next to a bowl of arugula so you can toss them together if you choose. Add some grilled chicken of course for some added protein!
  • Any white balsamic vinegar will work but we love to use a lemon infused vinegar from a local shop called Baker and Olive. If you use plain, white balsamic vinegar, add a drizzle of balsamic glaze for a sweet pop.
  • Of course you can sub reduced-fat for full-fat feta and it will just be yummier! You’ll just want to adjust the macros if you’re concerned with that.
  • This salad is best served fresh, but without the arugula, we enjoy it out of the fridge for a couple of days, but everything will get more watery.
