All hail the watermelon salad! It officially feels like summer when the table cloth is gingham and the salads are comprised of mostly fruit. Rad Mom and sensorial brand consultant, Laura Kyttanen taught us that this salad can be super fancy (think 5-6 cubes of watermelon per plate surrounded by delicate drops of balsamic) or very casual (think 4th of July picnic style!). The choice is yours and no matter how you plate it, it tastes so delicious! What’s your go-to summer salad recipe?
