Whole Pantry~Watermelon & Avocado Salad
I love this recipe in the summer months when I do everything I can to stay hydrated.
Watermelon is high in vitamin C and potassium which makes this combination great at easing inflammation.
We often have dinner at the beach in the summer and this is one of our go-to recipes. I love the pairing of avocado and Haloumi (goat’s cheese) with the watermelon. There is a touch of salt to the cheese which adds a wonderful depth of flavor. The avocado’s texture melts in your mouth and gives the salad a rich, luscious fullness.
Experience it for yourself, it is easy to make and sure to be a crowd-pleaser.
