There were so many requests for dishes that were either salads or didn’t require cooking from this post…let’s read some of them…. I read the other requests and I will get to them when I can.

suggestions

Some ingredients that will go on top, baby red onions, goat cheese, olive oil salt and pepper dressed arugula, sliced mangoes, sliced tomatoes and sprouts.

Slice an 1″ thick rectangular block of watermelon and freeze for 15-30 minutes. You might think this watermelon salad sounds weird but it’s SO GOOD. Use a seedless watermelon though!

To the right, super dense balsamic vinegar, and to the left Campari Soda..something I plan on drinking with this refreshing, cold meal.

Dress the watermelon with olive oil and and that thick balsamic vinegar. Add salt to taste.

Add the sliced mangoes on top, and continue with the Arugula.

Add everything else, the goat cheese should be added last. Here are the rest: tomatoes, sprouts, red onions…You know there are always a few ingredients in a dish that really make it delicious. For this, it would be the goat cheese, and the red onions. Somehow that + the mixture of the balsamic and watermelon just work so well together. I do not like fruit in my salads (like strawberry for example) or things like pineapple and ham pizza, but this just works for me. If you negate the goat cheese, this dish is vegan..but the goat cheese is the best part.

For a drink: Campari Soda with Izze Blackberry soda mixed together on ice with lots of sliced lime.

Since this watermelon was frozen a little, it’ll keep you very cool. This took me less than 10 minutes to make.
