Spicy Shrimp And Watermelon Salad

You feel like eating something simple but a little fancy, something fusion with non-ordinary mix of flavors? Seafood on a weekend? How about shrimps? Watermelon? Some tomatoes, basil and feta cheese? It seems to me I’ve already revealed all the ingredients of the salad I am showing you today. But the real star of this salad, I think, is its dressing! It tastes incredibly delicious!!!!

And even though my husband was not sure about the taste of the salad, I actually fell for it. I guess, it depends on how you perceive the mix of different tastes.

The recipe was traditionally found on the pages of Glamour magazine where I also found out about Jennifer Iserloh, the Skinny Chef, a dietitian and the author of the blog about healthy eating skinnychef.com Truly recommend to read it from time to time.

I hope, you’ll enjoy cooking and eating this salad on the upcoming weekend. It will remind you of summer!
