Watermelon and Spinach Salad
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 30 min.
Very flavorful. We eat salads every day in the summer; this was a nice treat to add the watermelon. Thank you, Marjorie, for sharing this recipe.
Yum really good!
I was a little hesitant to try this recipe--seemed like a bit of a stretch with the combination of ingredients. I am so glad that I did! We loved it and will definitely fix again. I followed the recipe to a tee and used rice vinegar. It's a keeper! Thanks for sharing.
Spinach and watermelon wouldn't have been my first choices to mix together, so I was pleasantly surprised that they went so well together here. The salad itself could be used with lots of other dressings. The hint about scooping out the cucumber seeds was helpful.
Interesting combination of fruits and vegetables, so made for summer luncheon. Had lots of leftovers; gets watery so doesn't keep long. Did not like the dressing. Too tangy with all the ginger root, vinegar and lime. Might have preferred with a honey yogurt or poppyseed dressing. Probably never make again as felt wasted lots of ingredients that could have enjoyed in separate spinach and fruit salads.
Delicious! The vinaigrette is the perfect foil for the sweet melon. I made it for a birthday party and it received rave reviews. I am tempted to add 1/2 a finely minced jalapeno to give it just a little more heat, and a diced avocado for a texture foil, besides which, the vinaigrette would be divine on avocado!
This salad is delicious even without the dressing but the dressing brings it to another level. I made it for a picnic yesterday and everyone wanted to recipe.
Excellent! As someone else said, it's summer in a bowl!Update: Today I added cooked, diced chicken to the salad and made it a main dish salad. Excellent, also!
Haven't made it yet, but it sounds intriguing! Can anyone comment on how long they held the salad after putting it together? I'd like to take this to a potluck.
I am not a big salad lover, but I absolutely loved this! I substituted a Yogurt, Honey Lime dressing and it was absolutely delicious. The sweetness of the fruit and dressing cut through the bitterness of the spinach! Yum!
