Watermelon And Goat Cheese Salad


By Lori Taylor

May is National Salad Month!  This Watermelon & Goat Cheese Salad from Garden Cut is one of my very favorites!  Don’t overlook fresh fruit as an ingredient option when you are preparing salads.  Watermelon is a great addition to salad, plus it always makes me think about warm weather, plus… who doesn’t like watermelon?!??  Seriously!  It’s a favorite to many.  This is pretty much the perfect salad & always well-received when I serve it to a crowd.  Easy to make, affordable & oh-so-delicious!
