Fresh Mozzarella Watermelon Salad is an easy salad and a great no-cook strategy for staying cool in the summer heat! It’s cool, delightful and a creative way to serve watermelon!
I kept hearing my Mom’s voice inside my head as I was concocting this salad, “Don’t just eat the heart of the watermelon!” Funny how childhood memories pop up at the weirdest times….
Well, I didn’t listen to her this time and made this wonderful, cool and refreshing salad with, gasp!, just the center of the watermelon. I committed Watermelon felony….hmmm, it was worth it!
You can’t get much better than a cool watermelon to beat the summer heat. Big Daddy could not stop raving about it. That is a huge compliment! Huge!!!
This is such a light and tasty salad, an unexpected combo of flavors! The sweet and slightly crunchy watermelon paired with the creamy, fresh mozzarella is a winner. The two are seriously good without the mint and balsamic dressing, with it, this salad is over the top.
Serve this salad as a side to any main dish. It pairs beautifully with steak, fish, chicken or pork dishes.
I also like that it’s super easy to put together, making it great for your average weeknight. It’s also beautiful and impressive and looks much more difficult than it actually is to through together, making it perfect for entertaining!
I serve it both with and without the layer of greens on the bottom. Hey, sometimes I forget to get things at the store. I make it work. this salad is great either way.
Layer slices of watermelon on spring lettuce blend. Top watermelon with fresh mozzarella. Spread mint leaves over top. Drizzle with Balsamic Salad Dressing. It’s that simple. This salad is the epitome of refreshing!
