RETURN TO FOOD & DRINK

Ingredients

Dressing:
1 lemon, zested and juiced (use one teaspoon)
1 lime zested and juiced (use one tablespoon)
1/2 bunch cilantro or 1 bunch parsley, leaves only, chopped
1/2 cup fat-free Greek yogurt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Salad:
5-6 cups seedless watermelon, cubed*
2 stalks celery, sliced
1 red onion, thinly sliced
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
2 tablespoons feta cheese, crumbled

* If you can find a "personal" size watermelon, that's the perfect size for this recipe.

Watermelon is a favorite summer dessert, but it makes a lovely salad, too. Here, creamy citrus dressing pairs with the sweet melon and crunchy celery.
