Are you making big plans for Independence Day?

We usually go to a small lake, tucked away in the Blue Ridge mountains, the week of July 4th. We hike to waterfalls, float in the lake, paddling board, and do a lot of simple summertime cooking.

Ingredients

  • 4 cups fresh seedless watermelon, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
  • 1 pint fresh blueberries
  • 1 jicama, peeled and chopped into 1/2 inch cubes
  • 3/4 cup feta cheese, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice + zest of 1 lime
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  1. Peel and chop the jicama and watermelon.
  2. Place the watermelon cubes, blueberries, and jicama in a salad bowl. Sprinkle with lime zest.
  3. Whisk together the lime juice and honey, then season with salt. Gently toss the dressing into the salad.
  4. Finally toss in the feta cheese and serve immediately.

Recipe Notes

NOTES: The watermelon will release its juices over time and makes the bottom of the bowl soupy. If making ahead, you may need to pour off the juices after an hour. You can also mix everything but the watermelon. Cut the melon and place them in a separate bowl. Then add the watermelon chunks into the salad right before serving, leaving the juices in their own bowl.
