Though Spring seems like a distant memory, the heat has caused me to seek out something light and fresh from the Southern garden. I’ve managed to find some really great watermelons this season and I was inspired by a delicious dinner to make a cool summer salad. I’m new to this whole salad game, since I’m the carnivore of the group, but the fresh, cool flavor of the watermelon and the zip of red onion was too good to pass up. I give you my Southern fresh Watermelon Spring Salad to take the edge off this heat.
