I’ve did it. I’ve found my “go-to” healthy dish when I’m in a crunch. This spiralized cucumber and watermelon salad is going to be my “I’m too busy to cook doing _______ and I need something quick!” dish that I make. At home, for a grill out, or even a potluck, this easy salad is full of flavor, easy on the waistline, and screams “summer is here!”
Alright people. Everyone pause what you’re doing because we need to talk about this salad. In my quest to get healthy I created this salad that is the mother of all salads. I mean, if you’re into BBQ and being healthy and shizzz.
Let’s talk about lettuce for a hot minute. Is anybody else a picky lettuce eater besides me? I love a great big, fresh salad, but so help me those salads with big white chucks of lettuce just drive me crazy.
Hey all! I have to offer my apologies for my absence on here in the last week. I came down with a nasty cold/cough/sore throat/chest congestion bug that stayed with me for days on end. I went to sushi with friends last Thursday night and when I got home I was feeling really tired. I didn’t think much of it; I’m up at 5:15am most mornings, so I figured the gym was just catching up with me. I was in bed at 8:30pm, and woke up when Dylan came to bed with the beginning of a sore throat. It was downhill from there. I’m still not 100%, but life (and two work presentations) must go on!
I have to be honest – I had no intention of posting this recipe. In fact, I was impressed that I even got a healthy dinner made on the evening that I made this. We did a big grocery store run after returning from vacation and the goal for dinner was quick, healthy and easy. I thawed out some chicken breasts and figured a salad would require the least maintenance after we ran all of our errands that evening. But what ended up coming together was amazing; my new go-to salad from here on out.
