Kathleen is having a "Summer Whimsy" party at Let's Dish! and Sandi is having a "Savour the Summer" Tea Party at Rose Chintz Cottage and I wanted to use one of my favorite teapots that I recently found in a storage box. The sweet Joan Walsh Anglund doll that's sitting on a wicker chair, belonged to my daughter when she was a little girl. My "summer" blocks were a gift from my sister and actually have a watermelon paint design and a tiny watermelon on top.
I had to add my favorite lady vase to the setting. She always stays on my kitchen sink area all year long. My Mikasa Berry Delight dishes blend with my teapot.
What could be more perfect for my summer theme than a watermelon and feta salad?
My youngest daughter-in law made a version of this fabulous salad, but she used arugula. I had some spinach at home and decided to use that instead. It's a refreshing salad for summer and has the coolness and sweetness from the watermelon and a slight bite from the feta. I love this combination and I think you will, too. I hope you try it at your next outing. You could also add some blueberries and have a red, white and blue salad.
For the Salad
Spinach or arugula
Watermelon, seeded and cubed
Red onion, sliced
Feta cheese, crumbled
Combine all the salad ingredients in whatever portion you like. Drizzle with the balsamic dressing and toss. Enjoy!
1/2 cup oil (olive oil or canola)
1/4 c. Balsamic vinegar (I used white balsamic this time)
1 T. sugar (I used 2 packets of Splenda)
1/4 t. salt
freshly ground pepper
Combine oil and remaining ingredients in a jar. Covers tightly & shake. Pour over enough to coat your salad; save the rest for another time.
