Shrimp & Watermelon Summer Salad

shrimp and watermelon salad

It has been awhile, and when I say awhile I mean years since my last food post, so I'm super excited to be sharing one of my favorite eats again. Summer is almost over, so I thought it would be great to share my favorite dish this season. I love it so much that I've been prepping it for lunch for the last two weeks. I'm all for a quick and savory meal and this salad is just that. light enough to not weigh you down and satisfying enough to give you the fuel needed to tackle your day. ok, I'm getting a bit dramatic (haha). 

I'm an experimenter (a good but mostly bad thing) in the kitchen, so I usually never measure and just season to taste. That is why I've had to learn the hard way that when something comes out good It needs to be documented. With this salad, I experimented by adding fruit, which I never really played around with too much. It was a pleasant surprise to taste how well the sweetness of both the watermelon and tomatoes complimented each other and because I'm a seafood lover, the shrimp was the icing this dish needed. 

Ingredients:

  • Shrimp: Seasoned with salt, pepper, paprika, and lemon.
  • Quinoa
  • Watermelon
  • Tomatoes
  • Feta Cheese
  • Red Wine Vinegar dressing 

If you have any favorite dishes you've made this summer, I'd love to hear about them in the comments!
