I don’t think anything takes me back to my childhood more than Waldorf salad or melon balls. I thought it would be fun to combine the two.
Watermelon Waldorf Salad
The flesh of one watermelon diced or use your melonball tool
1 cucumber diced. I used 2 lemon cucumbers since they are small
3 stalks of celery diced
1 jalapeno diced (optional)
2 or 3 tablespoons of mayo
Juice of one lemon or lime, I used lime
Salt, pepper and honey to taste.
A handful of basil or mint minced (optional).
A handful or two of toasted nuts, I used pecans.
Combine the melon and vegetables and make the dressing. Just before serving add the dressing to the melon and vegetables.
Top with the nuts.
You can make more dressing if you like. I tend to like my salads very lightly dressed.
Have a great week.
