Watermelon Salad with Almonds, Tangy and Delicious

There is nothing like fresh watermelon to liven up your salad!  This quick and refreshing watermelon and almond salad is great by itself as a late afternoon snack, or paired with chicken, beef or pork. The tangy lime and chilito dressing gives it a nice satisfying punch. Keep it in mind for Meatless Mondays and serve it with a cheese quesadilla or black bean tostadas.

We love the almonds for a nice crunch, and a dash of plant-based protein, but if you don’t have almonds in your pantry, it works very well without the nuts.  I didn’t have almonds the other day for my book group potluck, and it was still delicious!  I kept it to 3 ingredients: the watermelon, the cilantro and the queso fresco.  The dressing with the lime, olive oil, a little salt and chilito was a huge hit.

This beautiful red, green and white salad is a great way to feed your daily fruit and veggie habit!

Comadre Gracie packs it for lunch and keeps it chilled in the office fridge.  Just make sure you put a post-it on it with your name or else it might disappear!

Makes 6 cups. 1 serving = 1 cup.
