Hosts of “Keeping Up with Coco and Lala” shared a refreshing salad perfect for your next summer picnic.
WATERMELON MOZZARELLA SALAD
1/4 C. of non dairy mozzarella shreds
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 lemon juiced
1 lime juiced
2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil plus extra for sprinkling
2 garlic cloves minced
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (optional)
2 cups watermelon balls about 1/2 large watermelon
1 1/2 cups cucumber balls about 3 seedless cucumbers
Place the non-dairy mozzarella shreds in a bowl. In a smaller bowl, whisk together the olive oil, lemon and lime juice, basil, garlic, oregano, salt and pepper. Pour it over the mozzarella and stick it in the fridge while you use a melon baller to scoop out the watermelon and cucumber.
Place the watermelon and cucumber in a large bowl. Pour the mozzarella and all the dressing contents in the bowl with the melon and toss well. You can keep this is the fridge for about an hour before serving. Top with extra fresh basil and herbs before serving and toss well!
