I can’t say enough about the wonder of no-cook meals. When the weather heats up and you want to spend as little time as possible in a hot kitchen, easy to make salads like these are perfect. This particular salad is so delicious, refreshing and juicy, that you’ll happily welcome a few drips running down the side of your mouth. Tossing in some arugula or baby greens is a nice compliment, but the fruit stands beautifully on its own.
4 cups watermelon, 1 or 2-inch chunks
2 mangos, chopped
2 avocado, chopped
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
1 red onion, thinly sliced
¼ cup mint
¼ cup olive oil
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
1 lime, juice and zest
Salt and pepper to taste
In a small bowl, combine vinegar with lime juice and zest. Whisk in olive oil and season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Add sliced onions to the bowl and marinate for about 10 minutes.
In the meantime, add watermelon, mango, avocado and tomato chunks to a large bowl. Toss with dressing and onions. Finish with mint, thinly sliced or chopped.
