One of the best ways to eat healthy is to keep your eyes peeled for recipes that stretch your comfort zone.
Typically, you won’t see me eating fruit unless it’s berries, apricots or cantaloupe. But these days, I’m trying to change my ways and stretch my comfort zone with fruit packed recipes.
I’ve seen more than one watermelon salad recipe that intrigued me, and after thinking about it awhile, I decided to whip up my own.
This fruit salad couldn’t be any easier to prepare. Watermelon, garbanzo beans, spicy red onion, walnuts and feta cheese. Simple ingredients with big impact.
Toss your creation with an easy Dijon mustard vinaigrette to balance out that sweet watermelon, and you have a new twist on the same old fruit salad – a salad this non-fruit lover will eat.
Happy, healthy cooking!
